1972 Manama
Official Postage Stamps



These beautiful official government issued postage stamps from Manama were made of a plastic like material and used a an advanced printing technique to show multiple images as the card was moved. This technique was later used on a baseball card issue called "Sportflics".

Each of these postage stamps pictured 2 different players as the stamp was titled. There were 8 different stamps issued, 4 with American player-combos and 4 with Japanese player-combos.

A special stamp picturing BABE RUTH alongside the famous Yankees "MURDERS ROW" was also issued and appears to be significantly scarcer than the others.

1968 Baseball Marbles (Creative Creations)

1968 Baseball Marble
These 'Marbles' were issued in 'blister packs' of 20 marbles. The 'Marble' was a ¾”-diameter clear plastic orb containing a paper insert with the player's portrait on the front a facsimile autograph on the back.
The blister packs themselves are collectible. They measure 9-3/4” x 10-1/2”, with the marbles positioned on front; the pack’s back features a baseball design awash in approximately 60 player's facsimile signatures. 1968 Baseball Marbles The package mentions 24 series of 20 marbles per but only 120 different marbles were created.

1968 Baseball Marble One of the more interesting collectibles from the late 1960's, they are sought after by both Team and Player collectors.

For another similar interesting issue see the 1970 Chemtoy SuperBalls.

Some other ways
to sell your baseball cards


Auctions are a very popular way to sell vintage sports cards. My two reasons why:
#1 Desirable items tend to get top dollar (or better !)
#2 Everything goes
...   This can be good  - Everything gone, final total likely reasonably high
...   or can be Very Bad - Everything gone, but at unexpectedly low prices

OTHER WAYS TO SELL YOUR CARDS
eBay (via Buy-it-Now not an auction)
your local card store
your local swap meet
your local Craigslist
your own or a shared garage/yard sale

Donate to charity for the tax write-off
Not selling but perhaps the easiest with still a possible return.
ASSUMPTIONS:
#1) You are one of the RARE tax payers left in America #2) We are talking about mostly "junk" from late 1980's, early 1990's. Consider keeping your better stuff for one of the sell options and donating rest to charity. Tax deductions used to be based on lesser of what it cost and "What-it-is-Worth". For the "What-it-is-Worth" part I use Beckett which usually turns out to be higher than what you paid. Check with your tax guy.

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

(part 4)
Team Set - a group of cards featuring all the issues of the players of a particular team from the same release.

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 player’s 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 1990’s 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.
