1964 Topps

Front of these cards contain a large color photograph of the player that blends into the top of the panel where the players team name can be found. The bottom of the card contains a box with the players name and position. The backs were printed in orange on a white background, which makes them hard to read. There are more centering problems on the card backs than any other set, and the orange borders are easily chipped. The backs also contain typical statistics and biographical information as well as a cartoon quiz that required rubbing of white panel to reveal the answer.
Specialty cards include:
Statistical Leaders (LL)
Multi-player cards (MP)
World Series Highlights (WS)
Rookie cards
