Ernie Banks Peel-Off Sticker

This sticker comes from the 1963 Topps Peel-Off insert set. As you can see, the front has a floating head picture of the player, along with a listing of his team and position.

There were a total of 46 unnumbered stickers in the set. Banks was one of two Cubs in the set; second baseman Ken Hubbs was the other.

I would assume that these would be more scarce than other inserts of the era, since many of them ended up getting stuck on notebooks, book covers, and other assorted items.

If you're wondering who else the set included, here is the checklist, sorted by team.

  1. You likely address this in a later post, but there are two versions of these: "blank back" and "instruction back." As if people needed instructions about peeling off the peel-off sticker!
