1962 Topps Bucks

1962 Topps Bucks were inserts in packs of 1962 Topps football cards. They are printed on paper, like typical play money. The bills were folded for insertion into the packs, so each bill has a vertical crease to the right of the player's image. The grading companies do not consider this crease a defect, so it does not affect the bill's grade.

The bills are numbered on the back. There are 48 bills in the set, in denominations of $1, $5, and $10. If I counted correctly, a full set totals $167 in play money. You can see an uncut sheet of the bucks on the Mile High Auctions web site. The full set is printed exactly once on the sheet, so there are no short prints or double prints in the set.
