The Topps Sell Sheet / Photo Project — 1962

The 1962 Topps set is very popular for its wood grained borders and a simple design. It is one of my favorite sets but for whatever reason, the brown borders tend to chip easily so it is hard to find a complete set in high grade condition. The set I'm currently working on which is in EX or better condition, is 87% complete needing 74 cards to complete this 598 card set. Of all the sets I'm currently working on, the 1962 Topps set is the one I'm furthest away from as far as completion goes. It will be a long time before I finish this one.

I have this set (and all of my sets) stored in a binder. I like to use sell sheets as covers as I think they make the sets more attractive. However, I don't have a complete run of sell sheets so I either have to use a photo or a picture of a pack and/or wrapper instead.

Here is what I have for my 1962 set:

I really like these old Topps sell sheets. I just wish there was a way to get all of the ones I am missing. However, I have contacted Topps and they do not have any in their "Topps Vault". So, I'll have to keep looking on EBay and see if any end up surfacing.

Here are some more pics of wrappers and wax boxes from 1962:

Stay tuned as I will soon present what I have for 1963. Thank you for reading my blog!
