50 Years Ago:First Series Of Beatles Trading Cards Issued

You know you’ve made it in America when you get your image on a bubblegum card.

In May 1964, as all things Beatles were taking hold over the youth of the world, Topps got in on the game, issuing the first in a series of Beatles trading cards. The original series featured a total of 60 black & white cards in the set, and sold for five cents a package.
There were other sets of cards issued at various points in the ’80s and ’90s, but it’s the original three series that remain highly collectible to Beatles fans..
