The horizontally designed cards are grouped numerically by team as follows: New York Yankees (1-13), Detroit (14-26), Baltimore (27-36), Cleveland (37-45), Chicago White Sox (46-55), Boston (56-64), Washington (65-73), Los Angeles Angels (74-82), Minnesota (83-91), Kansas City (92-100), Los Angeles Dodgers (101-115), Cincinnati (116-130), San Francisco (131-144), Milwaukee (145-157), St. Louis (158-168), Pittsburgh (169-181), Chicago Cubs (182-191), and Philadelphia (192-200). Cards 5B Mickey Mantle, and 6B Roger Maris were printed on thin stock in a two-card panel and distributed in a Life magazine promotion (April 13, 1962 issue). The checklist for this set is the same as that of 1962 Jello and 1962 Post Canadian, but those sets are considered separate issues.
