1993 Topps Inaugural Rockies

1993 Topps Rockies Inaugural logo In 1993 Topps produced a limited number of special gold foil enhanced factory sets to honor the first season of the Colorado Rockies. A special gold foil Rockies logo was added to all the cards.

With an initial print run of 5,000, the Rockies had another 5,000 sets made for a total of only 10,000 total factory sets. Since cards were only available as factory sets which most collectors kept complete. and no packs were sold making singles and team sets quite a bit tougher to find.

1964 Topps Stand-Ups
Checklist & Values


One of Topps most popular 1960's test issues !!!
Blank-backed, unnumbered & 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 could be folded so the player's picture could "stand up" alone. 1934-36 Batter Up and the 1951 Topps All-Star sets are 2 other popular stand-up issues.

22 of the 77 cards are single prints making them twice as scarce and much higher in demand. Thanks to the green and yellow borders and that most cards have been folded, 1964 Stand-Ups extremely difficult to obtain in high grade.

On the left and right are images of a pack and box. Set packed with 19 Hall-of-Famers including the Top-5: Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron & Sandy Koufax.

Auction's most costly vintage baseball cards



The history of vintage baseball card auctions is long and colorful.

The T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco card has sold for upto $2.8 million in auction. Called the "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", to me it's extreme-high auction value can mostly be attributed to great PR and "auction fever". It's not close to being the rarest baseball card and Honus Wagner is not Babe Ruth or Mickey Mantle. Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful & special but because of it's size and scarcities, not many collector's ever try to complete, which should keep auction competition way down compared to say 1933 Goudey or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
BUT IT DOES NOT...

There's a story Wagner banned his card because he was anti-tobacco but there are other stories about financial considerations.

You likkely have heard of PSA and may even know that this card was the FIRST they ever graded. But did you know dealer (B.l. .ast.o) admitted tampering with the card, perhaps trimming it down to size, before PSA graded it so highly for the auction.
