Product Details

User Rating:

1964 Topps Giants Baseball is one of the most affordable card sets of the era. Featuring a slew of superstars and an attractive over-sized design, many consider this release to be a bargain.

The 60-card 1964 Topps Giants Baseball checklist is highlighted by all-time hobby favorites like Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente and Hank Aaron. With such a small number of cards, building a set remains a reasonable task, especially when factoring in the prices. Even though a handful of short prints make sets a bit more of a challenge, supply is plentiful enough that they're not out of reach.

1964 Topps Giants Baseball cards measure 3 1/8" by 5 1/4". Card fronts have a simple design. The larger format makes for big posed player photos. Beyond that, fronts have very few design elements. Pictures have a small white border. A baseball icon at the bottom has the player's name position and team.

Card backs resemble a newspaper clipping. The have a headline, another photo and a write-up of a career accomplishment.

  1. Nice to have a small set size that boasts such a great list of Hall of Famers. The short-prints add a bit of challenge since they are truly scarce (about 1 out of every 40 normal cards). Great photography too puts this set towards the top of of great sets in the 1960s.

  2. I just recently started collecting this set. The photos are really great and have a bunch of them autographed. Wish I had started a few years earlier. Having fun with it! :)

  3. The 1964 Topps Giant Baseball (also called 1964 Topps Super Baseball) card set is a great-looking set. I bought the 1964 Topps Giant set (all 60 cards) for just $3 in 1975 from The Sport Hobbyist, a mail order firm based in Detroit, that used to advertise in various baseball magazines back in the 1970’s. Of course, old baseball cards were a lot cheaper back then. This 1964 set was actually the first set that I acquired, long before I put together or bought other sets later on.
