Q6: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?

(part 2)
Error Card - essentially, a card with a wrong player photo, inaccurate bio, or any characteristic that separates it from correctivity. Baseball card history is rich with such mutations. Anything from the 1957 Topps "reversed negative" picturing Hank Aaron in his opposite batting stance, to the infamous 1983 Fleer Billy Ripken "obscenity" card which depicted a not-so-politically correct 4-letter word at the end of his bat handle.

Extended Set - Also frequently called Update Set or Traded Set.
defined as a set issued after a company’s original release to "update" the regular set and include players traded to another team and shown in their current uniform, or rookie cards of players featured in a single-photo.

Facsimile Autograph - a simulated autograph printed on a card designed to show what the player’s actual signature looks like. These are NOT the player’s "real" autograph.

Factory Set - a complete set in a special box and wrapped with a protective covering produced by the manufacturer, usually with a unique seal and sold directly to dealers or card shop owners and not available through the usual retail outlets.

Grade - the physical condition assigned to a card, either by a price guide, or through the assessment made by sellers.

Graded Card - a card which has been assessed for condition by an independent source and given a ranking, with 10 being the best. The card is then placed in a hermetically-sealed plastic holder with the grade designation and player name, card company, card number, and serial number printed on the encasement.

Auction's most costly vintage baseball cards


The auction history of vintage baseball cards is long and colorful.

The 1909-1911 T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco card has been auctioned reaching as high as 2.8 million in one auction. Often called the "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", to me it's super-high auction value can mostly be attributed to good PR and "auction fever". It is not even close to being the rarest baseball card and Honus Wagner was not the most popular or important player. Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful and special in it's own right but because of it's huge size and many scarcities, it is not one many collector's ever try to complete, which should keep auction competition way down compared to say the 1933 Goudey or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
BUT IT DOES NOT...

There is a back story about Wagner banning his card because of his anti-tobacco stance but there are other stories about a more financial consideration.

I am sure you have all heard of the grading company PSA. You may also already have heard that this card was the FIRST card graded by PSA. But did you know that a dealer (B... .a...o) admitted in court to tampering with the card, perhaps by trimming it down to size, before PSA graded it so highly before it was placed in the auction ?

1952 Wheaties Champions

In 1952 Wheaties issued this set of cards on the back of their boxes. The 2" x 2-3/4" cards needed to be hand cut from the back of the boxes making high quality samples almost impossible to find. The set featured 30 different champions from a variety of sports in both "Portrait" and "In-Action" poses for a total of 60 different cards. 10 of the 30 athletes are baseball players with football, basketball, golf, bowling, diving and other sports also included.

Top players in the set are Ted Williams, Stan Musial, George Mikan, Ben Hogan and Otto Graham.
