1964 Topps Stand-Ups Complete Set
The 1964 Topps Stand-Ups set is easily one of the most popular specialty sets of the 1960's. This was the first set of die-cuts since the 1951 Topps All-Stars. The set contains 77 cards 55 were double-printed while 22 were single-printed causing them to be twice as scarce. The simple green and yellow background gives life and depth to the die-cut players. Considering the dark green, which is very susceptible to chipping, as well as the possibility of the die-cuts coming apart makes this set very difficult to find in high grade. Highlights include PSA 7 NM (8 cards) Mantle, Mays, Clemente, Mathews, Banks, Groat, Battey, and Charles. Additional stars include, Aaron EX-MT, Marichal EX, Cepeda EX-MT, Pinson EX+, Yaztrzemski EX+, Frank Robinson EX-MT, Brooks Robinson EX-MT, Koufax NRMT, Drysdale EX-MT, and Kaline EX-MT. The remaining balance of the cards present much nicer than their technical grads of 40% NRMT, 50% EX-MT, and 10% EX.
