1962 Topps Baseball Green Tint Variation Set

Year 1962
Manufacturer Topps

EX/MT - 6

This 1962 Topps Baseball Variation "Green Tint" set consists of the 93 cards that are not included in the Topps regular issue 1962 set.  These cards span from cards #110 to #196. There are also 3 additional variations for card #139: One of Babe Ruth Standing in the Grass and 2 cards of Hal Reniff.  The other variation cards are: #22 ERR, #192 COM, #441 SM, #516 WHI Checklists, #458 xEMB Buhl & 462 xEMB Tasby variations.

By the time that Topps realized that the sales of the 1962 Series would surpass expectations, the company printing the cards had moved on to the third series.  Topps commissioned a different printer to produce more third series cards from the same printing plates.  As result, the pictures on the cards were cropped slightly different and given a green tint.  A couple of the printing plates were damaged in transit and had to be replaced, which accounts for why there are two (sometimes very different looking) versions of the cards in the second series. The 1962 Topps 'Green Tint" cards were printed in smaller numbers and sell for a premium compared to the "regular" second series cards - which makes for a fun challenge for variation collectors.


Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $2,906.00.
