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.

1958 Hires Root Beer

Hires Root Beer issued this 66 card set back in 1958. The cards came with an attached advertising tab. Cards with their tab intact are extremely difficult to find and thus are quite expensive. The actual card size varies from 2-3/8 in. to 2-5/8 in. wide and 3-3/8 in. to 3-5/8 in. high without the tab. Cards are numbered from #10 thru #76 with #69 not issued.

The card design - a wood grain "knot hole" through which the player is viewed - is a collector's favorite and was brought back by Bowman for their 2003 Bowman Heritage product. Although small at only 66 cards, the set did contain it's share of cards of Hall-of-Famers and Superstars such as Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Pee Wee Reese, Don Drysdale, Richie Ashburn, Bill Mazeroski, Duke Snider, Larry Doby, Don Newcombe and others...

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.

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

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

1967 Topps WHO AM I ?

It's easy to see why the 1967 Topps "Who Am I? set is a favorite of both sports and non- sport collectors. The set's 44 cards feature mostly important figures from world history but what makes this set even more popular was the inclusion of 4 of baseball's most popular players: Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, Sandy Koufax and Willie Mays (pictured above) !!!

The players picture on the front is covered with a scratch-off disguise with silly, exaggerated features like hair, moustaches, hats, noses... and a clue to help kids identify the famous person pictured. The backs contained additional clues and instructions to "Scratch off disguise on front to discover Who I Am. Use a coin or fingernail."

Cards with their scratch-off coating intact are worth many, many times cards with the coatings removed. For example, NM/MINT Mickey Mantle with the coating is in the $200-$400 range while a NM/MINT Mantle with the coating removed is closer to $50.

Cards came in wax packs with 24 packs per box and the set is packed with desirable cards: Shakespear, Abe Lincoln, George Washington, Einstein, Queen Elizabeth, Joan of Arc, Julius Caesar, Columbus and Jackie Kennedy to name just a few.
