Test Issue - a preliminary offering issued as a test to see if a product would be accepted by collectors.
Tobacco Card - typically from the early 1900s, these were cards issued with tobacco products. The most famous of which is the "T-206" Honus Wagner card.
Traded/Update Set - a set issued after the original issue primarily featuring rookies or players who were traded since the original issue came out.
Trimmed Card - a card reduced in size from when it was issued, usually to hide an imperfection such as damaged edges or corners. Trimmed cards usually have very little value but in some cases such as the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle, even trimmed cards can go for thousands of dollars. The most famous 'trimmed' card to date is the T206 Honus Wagner purchased by Wayne Gretzky. The card was actually too large and was trimmed down to it's proper size.
Unauthorized Issue - a card release which is not licensed by a league, a playerís association, or by a player.
Variation - a card that was printed by the manufacturer in two or more different ways.
Wax - a universal collecting term for factory-sealed packs or boxes. The term "wax" most often refers to sealed material that was originally released in the early 1990ís or back -- a time when packs were wrapped and sealed in wax paper wrappers. It can casually reference modern era packs or boxes that no longer use actual wax paper.
1974 Topps DECKLE EDGEThis 72-card test issue set was released with a very limited distribution on only the East Coast around Massachusetts making them quite scarce. They were Officially simply called "Topps Baseball Photos" but their serrated or "DECKLED" edge gave them the name they go by today. The 2 7/8" x 5" inch cards were sold in either a 2 card pack with gum or a 3 card pack with no gum for 5 cents.
1969 Topps StampsThis was Topps 3rd stamp issue in the last eight years and it was a good one !!! The stamps were not inserts but a totally separate issue . For a nickel you got a strip of twelve stamps plus a mini album. The 1969 Topps Stamps complete set contains 240 stamps. The 1 x 1-7/16 inch stamps were unnumbered and featured a color photo with the player's name, team and position inside a colored banner at the bottom of the stamp. The stamps were released in both vertical and horizontal strips of 12 stamps. The 1969 Topps Stamps are often confused with Topps' 1974 issue. The 1974 Topps Stamps have ovals rather than banners at the bottom and were released only in 12-stamp horizontal panels.
