1964 Topps Stand-Up

1964 Topps Stand-Up Pittsburgh Pirates

The 1964 Topps Stand-Ups set consists of 77 cards, each measuring 2-1/2” by 3-1/2”. The blank-backed and unnumbered cards were the first since the All-Star sets of 1951 to be die-cut. Each one features a full action pose of a player set against a yellow and green background (with the top half yellow and bearing folding instructions; when the figure is "punched out," it allows the item to stand freely with a green base). This feature, along with the flush-to-the-border design of the set, makes finding these unusual and excessively fragile cards in high grade especially difficult. Of the 77 cards, 22 were single-printed, making them twice as scarce.
