Q2: How long have sports cards been around ?

(part 2)
The first important and mainstream basketball set was issued by Bowman in 1948. Other than a Topps set in 1957-58 and a 1961-62 Fleer set, there were no mainstream basketball sets issued until Topps started producing yearly sets beginning with their 1969-70 set featuring the rookie card of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who then went under the name of Lew Alcindor.

In hockey, there were a few sets issued in the 1910's and while O-Pee-Chee issued some sets in the 1930's, the real modern sets began in 1951 with the itroduction of Parkhurst's first set.

In racing, while cards go back as far as the early Indy car days of 1911, modern racing sets began in 1988 with the issues released by MAXX.

1955 Topps Double-Headers (Doubleheaders)
Baseball Cards Set checklist/info

Click for complete 1955 Topps Double-Headers (Doubleheaders) baseball cards Checklist and Prices
Note: You may be on that page right now.

Without a doubt this is my favorite set - PERIOD. Regular issue, test issues, inserts ... whatever ... this is # 1 !!!

Patterned after the famous Mecca Double Folders issued in the early 1900's, these colorful 2 1/16" x 4 7/8" cards are actually 2-cards-in-1! They are perforated in the center and depending on which way you fold the card you create cards of 2 different players. Unperforated 1955 Topps DoubleHeaders can sometimes be found.


All 132 players (66 cards) in the 1955 Topps DoubleHeaders set were also in Topps regular issue. Interestingly, images for the DoubleHeaders were taken from the action images on regular 1955 Topps ..or.. vice-a-versa. A 1955 Topps DoubleHeaders wrapper shown above.
One of the special aspects of this beautiful set is that when layed side-by-side they form spectacular scenes from actual stadiums !!! Old-timers - can you identify the stadiums ?

TOP ROOKIES: Harmon Killebrew & Hal Newhouser
Top STARS: Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Jackie Robinson, Al Kaline, Warren Spahn & MORE !!!

No doubt about it - the best !!!

1963 Topps Stickers

Another of the interesting Topps Issues of the 1960's !
Topps inserted these Stick-Ons (stickers) in several of series of their 1963 Topps baseball cards. Interestingly, the Stick-On inserts were not mentioned or advertised on wax pack wrappers in 1963.

The complete 1963 Topps Stick-Ons set is packed with HALL-OF-FAMERS and contains 46 stickers measuring 1-1/4" x 2-3/4". The Stick-Ons come in 2 distinct variations. They can be found either with blank-backs or the scarcer variation with instructions printed on the back.

The Stick-Ons have with an approx. 3/16" "white" band running left to right across the mug shot. This band appears to be lighter than the printing above and below it. Theory is that it is an aging effect caused by the backing strip.

TOP STARS: Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Stan Musial, Al Kaline, Carl Yastrzemski, Ernie Banks and tons MORE !!!
