1965 Topps baseball cards This set has 598 cards, each measuring 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches.

Card fronts have a large color photo surrounded by a thin color frame, with a pennant graphic to the lower left showing the team name; in a space below the main image are the player's position and (in larger letters) name.

Card backs feature the card number in a baseball graphic to the top left, next to which sit the player's name and quick fact from his career in 'cartoony' lettering, next to a small cartoon graphic depicting the fact. Below that are the player's brief biographical data followed by year-by-year game statistics.

Some cards in the high-number series of cards of this set (#'s 523-598) are considered to be short-printed and thus scarcer.
