Green Tints and More Oddities from the 1962 Topps Baseball Complete Set This 1962 Topps Baseball Variation-Green Tint set consists of all 91 variation cards that are not included in the Topps regular issue 1962 set. That said, if you were to purchase this set in conjunction with the regular 1962 Topps set, you would have a true 1962 Topps Complete Master Set. The majority of the variation cards in this set are the Green Tint cards from the second series. These cards span from card #110-196. It is rumored that Topps anticipated this 1962 issue to be highly sucessful, so after printing the first series, they decided to increase the print run on this second series. Instead of printing all of the cards at the same location in Philadelphia, they opted to print some cards at a printing plant in New York as well. Unfortunately the printing plates got damaged in transit, so this is accounts for why there are two (sometimes very different looking) versions of the cards in the second series. These green tint cards can be hard to find, and can sell for a premium when compared to the "regular" second series cards. We spent a lot of time putting together this variation master set, and we've built the entire set by hand.

Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $3,351.80.

  • 1962 Topps #138 G The Famous Slugger - Babe Ruth: 7 - NM
