1962 Topps Baseball Stamps

For a change of pace, I thought I'd cover a Topps issue. I recently came across the 1962 Topps Stamps and found that they included a logo stamp for each team.

For anyone not familiar with the 1962 Stamps, they were issued in two-stamp panels as inserts with 1962 Topps Baseball cards.

Here's an example that's not too shabby:


Here's a nice example showing the 2 expansion teams from that year:


The stamps are mentioned on the 1962 wrapper:


As well as the box:


A stamp album was sold separately for collectors to stick their stamps:

Each team had its own page for its stamps:


Here are the team logos:




There was a stamp insert set in 1961 as well, but the stamps were not in color but rather either brown or green, and the set did not include team logos.
