Topps Inc. is recalling memories of its '60s Beatles trading cards sets back with a new Facebook cover photo featuring the Fab Four it added Wednesday morning and its new Topps Heritage 2013 set that went on sale today.
The regular Topps Heritage 2013 set features cards of current players in the card design used in 1964, and several subsets of insert cards with pictures and autographs. One of those subsets, a series of News Flashback inserts with sports, music, political and entertainment figures, features a picture of the Beatles. It's numbered NF-TB and is not autographed. The Topps Beatles insert is already for sale on eBay.
Baseball Think Factory reports the set also includes several specially marked Beatles buybacks inserts. Think Factory says these are for original Beatles cards from Topps’ 1964 run with a foil stamp added to distinguish them from the 2013 set.
The Rolling Stones (NF-RS) are also represented in the News Flashback subset with the Beatles, as are “Mary Poppins” (NF-MP), Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (NF-MLK), the 1964 World's Fair (NF-WF) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (NF-CRA).
