This set is probably the easiest of the three sets to build. American League players comprise the numbers from 1-100. Each card has the Post logo on it and the statistics have a blue border around them. The National League numbers from 101-200 and have a red border around the statistics.

There are short prints scattered throughout the set, but all are more readily available than SPs from either 1961 or 1963 - Sieburn, Keough, Hodges, Coleman, Lynch to name a few. Most of the games stars are represented in this set with a few exceptions - Stan Musial and Warren Sphan (even though he was in the 1961 set) come to mind.

There are also fifteen or so variations in this set. By far the most difficult are the blue line versions of Koufax, Clemente and Joey Jay. These cards have the normal red border around the statistics, but the hairline rules dividing the statistics is blue rather than red. There are also two versions of Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. One from the back of the cereal boxes whereas the second was an insert in an April 1962 edition of Life Magazine promoting the Post baseball card set. The final notable variation is of Brave Joe Adcock. Post misspelled his name on the some of the press run so collectors look for the Joe Adock variation.
