Q7: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?
Inserts - special randomly-inserted cards which are not part of the regular set. Many modern inserts are sequentially-numbered and rarer than the card sets into which they are inserted.
O-Pee-Chee / OPC - a subsidiary of Topps, this card issue was produced specifically for distribution in Canada.
Promotional Card - generally referred to as cards issued to show what the product will look like on release and intended to help spur future sales. Often called a "promo" card.
Reprint - cards issued to reproduce the originals. With the current trend of vintage reprints, the new versions have a distinguishing characteristic evidenced by numbering.
Restored - a card or piece of memorabilia which someone has tried to return to a "like-new" condition. A restored card is considered to be of very little value.
Rookie Card - any league-licensed, widely distributed card to feature a player in his first year of trading cards.
Series - a group of cards within an issue deliberately split up by the manufacturer to distribute at different times of the year. (i.e.- vintage 1st series cards 1-100 were released in April and 2nd series cards 101-200 were released in July, etc.).
Short Print (SP) - a card printed to a lesser quantity than other cards in a set. Many recent short prints are also individually & serially-numbered.

On the front, the coins featured the player's name and a raised image of

1963 Topps Peel-Offs (stickers)Another of the interesting Topps Issues of the 1960's !
Topps inserted these Peel-Offs (stickers) also called Stick-Ons in several of series of their 1963 Topps baseball cards. Interestingly, the Peel-Offs inserts were not mentioned or advertised on wax pack wrappers in 1963.
The complete 1963 Topps Peel-oFFs set is packed with HALL-OF-FAMERS and contains 46 stickers measuring 1-1/4" x 2-3/4". The Peel-Offs come in 2 distinct variations. They can be found either with instructions printed on the back or the much scarcer blank-back variation.
The Peel-Offs 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.
