1963 Topps baseball cards This set consists of 576 cards, each measuring 2-1/2 x 3-1/2".

The card front is dominated by a large color photo, with a smaller second photo in a circle at the bottom right. The larger photo is surrounded by a thin white border along the top and two sides, while a color panel along the bottom gives the player's name, team, and position.

Card backs Give two boxes along the top half of the card, horizontally aligned; the left box gives the card number, then the player's name and bio. The right-size box showcases a small cartoon showing an event in the player's career. The lower section gives statistics for each year of the player's career, as well as a total.

The highlight of this set is undoubtedly the Pete Rose rookie card.
