Q8: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?
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.

1969 Topps StampsFollowing stints as inserts in 1961 and 1962, stamps finally arrived with their own issue in 1969 ! A nickel for a 12-stamp strip plus a mini album !!!
The 1969 Topps Stamps set contained (240) 1x1-7/16 inch unnumbered stamps with player's photo and name,team & position inside a colored banner. The stamps were released in both horizontal (2 rows of 6) & vertical (2 columns of 6). 1969 Topps Stamps are often confused with Topps' 1974 issue. The 1974 Stamps have ovals rather than banners at bottom and came only in horizontal 12-stamp panels.
To store the stamps, Topps issued a set of 24 mini albums, one for each team. The booklets were the same size as a baseball card and held a complete 10-stamp team set. More fun for kids, the back cover had facsimile autographs of all the players in the team set. The design is nearly identical to the Topps 1969 football 4-in-1 stamp booklets.
The 1969 Topps Stamps set is packed with stars like Pete Rose and tons of Hall-of-Famers including MICKEY MANTLE, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente & many more !!!

Vintage Baseball Card Auction terminology
Register: You give us your name, address and email so we can contact you after the auction with your winning bids.Click for more info on my Weekly Vintage BASEBALL CARD AUCTIONS
2 Types of Bidding: There are 2 ways to bid in the auction.
Minimum or Starting bid: On expensive auction items, there is no point in auction bids starting at .25 and going up by .25 taking perhaps 100 such bids to reach even 10% of value. Thus some items in auctions have a "Minimum" or "Starting Bid".
Reserve bid: "Reserve" auction bids come into play once an auction is over. If the final "Hammer" price is less than the "Reserve" bid then there is no sale. I do not find this type of auction bidding very bidder friendly.
