1962/63 Topps Hockey Bucks

The 1962/63 Topps Hockey Bucks insert set deserves more attention in the hobby as one of the most unusual and low-production vintage Topps hockey issues. These are from Mastro’s December 2004 auction, which was noted as the first time they had offered the thin-paper inserts in one of their catalogs. You still don’t see complete sets that regularly in the hobby.

The 24 hockey bucks were designed to resemble the Canadian currency of the time. One 4-1/8″ x 1-3/16″ bill was vertically folded and fit into each pack.
