non-sport cards and card collecting. |
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 player’s 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 1990’s 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.
1956 Topps Baseball CardsI have a fondness for the 1956 Topps issue. When I first started collecting back in 1964, my friends and I would wander nearby neighborhoods in search of "old cards". Back then, the oldest cards we ever found in dealing with other kids were 1957 Topps.
