A Guide to Topps Baseball 1960-1964

Introduction

The purpose of this guide is to help familiarize consumers with the popular Topps Baseball card issues ranging from 1960 to 1964. 

The 5 main reasons that cards from the early 1960s currently make a good investment are:

  • Proven market track record over the last 20 years
  • Legendary players sure to increase in value (i.e. Mantle, Clemente, Mays,Koufax, Aaron, etc.)
  • Interesting and attractive designs
  • Scarce print runs
  • Deep sentimentality for the golden age of baseball

1960 Topps 

One of the most popular sets ever produced - beautifully designed with great use of color!  The set is terrribly condition sensitive in terms of centering and print defects making it very difficult to complete the set in grades higher than EX-MT.  Below is a list of key cards from the set along with NM Book value and current market status.
