1962 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1962 Topps Baseball Card Set features 598 standard size cards, each measuring 2½" by 3½". With their distinctive wood grain borders, the 1962 Topps cards tend to damage easily, making them scarce and expensive in the very high grades. The subsets for the 1962 Topps Set are: League Leaders (51-60), the Babe Ruth Series (135-144), World Series Highlights (232-237), In Action (311-319), All-Stars (466-475), and Rookie Parade (591-598).
This 1962 Topps baseball card set is loaded with variations, most of which are from Series 2, which is cards #110 to #196. The 1962 Topps high number series (523-598) can be very difficult to complete, especially with the "Short-Printed" (SP) and Rookie Parade Cards.
The key 1962 Topps rookie cards include: #99 Boog Powell, #199 Gaylord Perry and #387 Lou Brock.
