1962 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1962 Topps baseball card set features 598 cards with a distinctive wood-grain frame. These standard size cards measure 2½" by 3½". The subsets for the 1962 Topps baseball cards are the league leaders (51-60), the Babe Ruth series (135-144), World Series Highlights (232-237), In Action shots (311-319), the All-Stars (466-475), and the Rookie Parade (591-598). The high number series (523-598) can be very difficult to complete, especially with the "Short-Printed" (SP) and Rookie Parade Cards.
The key rookie cards from this set include #99 Boog Powell, #199 Gaylord Perry and #387 Lou Brock.
