1962 Topps San Francisco Giants Near Team Set

Year 1962
Manufacturer Topps
Team Giants

VG/EX - 4

This is a 1962 Topps San Francisco Giants Near Team Set. The 1962 season ended with the Giants & Dodgers each with 101 wins. The Giants beat the Dodgers in a 3 game playoff series and then took the Yankees to seven games in the World Series before losing when Willie McCovey's potential game winning liner was caught for the final out. 

We design the Near Complete Team Sets for the budget collector. They are built using the majority of cards for that team and leaving out the costly cards. While we will occasionly omit some expensive super-star rookie cards, most of the removed cards are the expensive high numbers, short-prints, and multi-player rookie cards, which add little benefit to the team set collector. 

The 1962 San Francisco Giants were loaded with talent.  The Giants roster included five future Hall-of-Fame players.  The Giants finished the season with 101 wins and tied with the Dodgers for first place.  They defeated the Dodgers in a best of three playoff and then lost the World Series to the Yankees.

This team set does not include the following high number short printed cards which would greatly increase the set price -- these cards can be purchased separately on our site: 1962 - 538 Jack Sanford 1962 - 544 Willie McCovey 1962 - 565 Jose Pagan 1962 - 578 Jim Duffalo.
