1964 Topps Beatles Diary Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

The 1964 Topps Beatles Diary trading card set is one of several collections Topps released during the first year of Beatlemania in the United States.

The conceit of this series is that it tells the story of The Fab Four through their eyes. While the card fonts feature generic photographs, usually not associated with the text on the reverse, the card backs are designed as journal entries from the band. For example, on card #2, John’s journal entry tells the story of the band meeting their manager, Brian Epstein.

This is the only set released by Topps that attempted to tell the Beatles story. The Black and White and Beatles Plaks had no information on the reverse, the Color Photos set offered trivia and interview answers, and A Hard Day’s Night focused on the film.

This checklist simply lists the band members who appear on the card front. The “diary entry” on the reverse of the cards does not necessarily match with the photo or person on the card front. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
