The 1964 Topps Beatles Plaks trading card set is one of the most rare and difficult to collect Beatles card sets of all time.
There are 55 oversized cards in this series, making it one of the smallest Beatles sets from 1964 (Topps Hard Day's Night was also 55 cards) but the difficulty in collecting this series is in finding quality cards. Each card included perforations -- hooks on the top, slits on the bottom -- that allow fans to connect the cards and hang the set on their walls.
Instructions for handling the perforations appear on the reverse of each card so the focus is 100% on the card fronts. Each front is a landscape photo and caption on a "wood" background. Due to the perforations and the tattered edge design, it is very difficult to find high quality cards which are not damaged or off center.
Our checklist includes all the cards in the series and can be searched or sorted as needed.
