1962 Topps


  • 1st year with New York Mets and Houston Colt .45's (Astros) cards.
  • First set featuring multi-player rookie cards.

    Hall of Fame rookie cards of Gaylord Perry, Joe Torre, and Lou Brock.
  • Dick Howser was named to the 1961 Topps All-Star Rookie Team but his #13 card is missing the trophy designation.
  • Packs of 1962 Topps baseball cards included a two-stamp panel.
  • All Houston cards refer to the team as the "Colts" instead of the "Colt .45s".
  • In a complete coincidence, card #346 for Jack Kralick highlights him throwing a no hitter in the northern minor league. He went on to throw one in the major leagues the year that card was released as well.
