About 1964 Topps Giants

The very same year that shortstop Bobby Thompson hit the "Shot Heard Round the World" to take the 1951 National League pennant, Topps branched out from candy making and into the world of baseball trading cards. Though those early years were fraught with stiff (sometimes a tad underhanded) competition from Bowman, Topps finally bought out their rival and ended the feud for good, eventually producing the popular 1964 Topps Giants sets for fans to enjoy. Today, Topps remains the leader in baseball trading cards, and the 1964 Topps Giants set is considered one of the toughest to complete in the entire registry. It is often necessary to purchase several partial 1964 Topps Giants lot offerings to achieve a full set, but in the end, the 1964 Topps Giants trading cards are among the most valuable you can own. Since Topps did not quit stuffing bubble gum into their packs until 1993, it is common to find some sets stained from the gum directly out of the wrapper. Consider this when you're determining whether a set on eBay is truly in mint condition, but be willing to take on some less-than-mint cards if it allows you to complete the set.
