1963 Topps

Although the number of cards in 1963 Topps decreased to 576, this is one of the most popular sets of the decade. The card fronts feature a large color player photograph with a smaller black and white portrait located inside a circle at the bottom of the card. The players name, team and position are also located along the bottom in a color box. The backs contain the typical statistical information along with a cartoon and a short biography. There are a handful of Short Printed (SP) cards and the high series (447-576) are scarcer and carry a premium.

1st series (1 - 109) the first 10 cards consist of the popular League Leader
card 3 HR Leaders Ernie Banks
card 54 had a error that were corrected in mid-run
2nd Series (110 - 196)
Landrum’s card 113 The photo was not that of Landrum but rather Ron Santo.
3rd Series (197 - 283)
card 242 Power Plus, featuring a full-length photo where Ernie Banks is the "Power" and Hank Aaron is the "Plus"
4th Series (284 - 370) these numbers are scarce and should command a price premium.
5th Series (371- 446) Legendary greats like #380 Ernie Banks
6th Series (447 - 522) scarce they command only a slight premium.
7th Series (523 - 576)
