Q7: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?

(part 3)
High Numbers - vintage cards were issued in the ‘50s-‘70s in a series. During the baseball season, the largest number of cards were made. As the schedule progressed into September, when there would be less interest in baseball cards , Topps for one, specifically decreased production and hence much less product was available. As a result, a scarcity-factor was created and a premium holds for these first type of "short-printed" cards.

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.

1960 Nu-Card Baseball Hi-Lites

This 72-card set of oversized (3-1/4" x 5-3/8") cards Issued by Nu-Card, Inc., featured baseball highlights 'Hi-Lites'. Printed in red and black, the card fronts resemble a newspaper's front page headline story with photo. The cards showcase some of the baseball's most interesting highlights in it's first 100 years of baseball.

The backs featured a trivia question and best of all they actually gave you the answer and then refered you to the card in the set with more info regarding the question.

Card #'s 1-18 can also be found in a scarcer blank-backed version with just black printing. They are quite rare and in 2 months on eBay out of approx 200 listings for 1960 Nu-Cards, ALL were of the red & black variety ! Other than #1 Ruth the black only cards are nearly identical to the black/red cards, differing only in the print color and the copyright. The black only cards had a copyright of “CVC” as opposed to the “NCI” (Nu-Card Inc.) on the black/red.

1964 Topps Stand-Ups

One of Topps most popular 1960's test issues !!!
Blank-backed and unnumbered, these standard size cards were called "Stand-Ups". "Stand-Ups" refers to a type of card that was die cut around the player's picture. The background section then could be folded so the card could stand up by itself while the player's picture stood alone. 1934-36 Batter Up and the 1951 Topps All-Star sets are 2 other popular standup issues.

The 77 card set features color photographs of the player on yellow and green backgrounds. 22 of the 77 cards were single printed making them twice as scarce and much higher in demand. Thanks to the green and yellow borders and the likelihood that most cards have been folded, 1964 Stand-Ups are extremely difficult to obtain in top grade.

Cards came in 1-card 1˘ packs with 120 packs/box and also 5˘ packs. The set is packed with 19 Hall-of-Famers including MICKEY MANTLE, Hank Aaron, Ernie Banks, Orlando Cepeda, Roberto Clemente, Don Drysdale, Al Kaline, Harmon Killebrew, Sandy Koufax, Juan Marichal, Eddie Mathews, Willie Mays, Bill Mazeroski, Willie McCovey, Brooks Robinson, Frank Robinson, Warren Spahn, Billy Williams and Carl Yastrzemski.

1991 Cardboard Dreams

1991 Cardboard Dreams Complete 16-card set.
PLUS Prototype cards #1 & #2.

1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #1 1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #2 Great little odd ball set with interesting fronts and backs.
1991 Cardboard Dreams Ryan back Cards were issued in 1991 as a promotional lead-in for an upcoming sportscard magazine to be named "Cardboard Dreams". The cards were given away at several Southern California and a couple of regional baseball card shows in random 1-card envelopes.

Unfortunately, shortly before the magazine's 1st issue, Major League Baseball and other agencies began several law suits against similar magazines. Before the dust settled, plans for the magazine were dropped leaving just the small run of promotional cards and a few color proof variations.

The set includes the following cards:

      SERIES 1                   SERIES 2
  #1 Willie Mays            # 9 Mickey Mantle                
  #2 Nolan Ryan             #10 Nolan Ryan & Sandy Koufax   
  #3 Tony Gwynn             #11 Frank Thomas & David Justice
  #4 Wayne Gretzky          #12 Brett Hull                  
  #5 Jose Canseco/Madonna   #13 Ted Williams & Joe DiMaggio 
  #6 Ken Griffey Jr         #14 Barry Sanders
