1964 Topps Giants

1964 Topps Giants Pittsburgh Pirates

The 1964 Topps Giants set consists of 60 cards, each measuring 3-1/8” by 5-1/4”. The series was the company’s first postcard-size issue, with each piece displaying a large color photograph surrounded by a white border and white baseball at the bottom right bearing the athlete’s name, position and team. Card backs carry another photo of the player surrounded by a newspaper-style explanation of the depicted career highlight. The set is known for its inclusion of many Hall of Famers. However, the 1964 Giants were not printed in equal quantity and seven of the cards, including Sandy Koufax and Willie Mays, are significantly scarcer than the remainder of the set.
