Extended Set - Also frequently called Update Set or Traded Set.
Facsimile Autograph - a simulated autograph printed on a card designed to show what the player’s actual signature looks like. These are NOT the player’s "real" autograph.
Factory Set - a complete set in a special box and wrapped with a protective covering produced by the manufacturer, usually with a unique seal and sold directly to dealers or card shop owners and not available through the usual retail outlets.
Grade - the physical condition assigned to a card, either by a price guide, or through the assessment made by sellers.
Graded Card - a card which has been assessed for condition by an independent source and given a ranking, with 10 being the best. The card is then placed in a hermetically-sealed plastic holder with the grade designation and player name, card company, card number, and serial number printed on the encasement.
Auction's Rarest Vintage Baseball Cards
Rare baseball cards and auctions were made for each other !
1959 Fleer Ted WilliamsTed Williams was one of the greatest hitters ever to play the game ! The 'Splendid Splinter' played from 1939-1942 and 1946-1960 all with the Boston Red Sox. He missed 1943 thru 1945 due to military duty when he was a pilot during the wars. For his career he hit .344 with 521 home runs. Ted Williams was one of the biggest stars baseball has ever seen, and his baseball cards remain very popular and valuable.
Ted's rookie card was in 1950 Bowman and he was exclusive with Bowman from 1950 thru 1954. In 1954 he also allowed Topps to make his cards which they did from 1954 thru 1958.
In 1959 Fleer signed Ted Williams away from Topps and assumed the star Ted Williams would be retiring, put out an entire 80-card set of cards highlighting Ted Williams and illustrating his life both in and out of baseball. Williams decided late in the fall to resign for another year perhaps damaging the sets impact. Today these cards remain extremely popular with most of the cards in teh set still quite affordable.
There is one very rare card in this set, #68 picturing Ted with Bucky Harris.
UNFORTUNATELY Topps had Bucky Harris under exclusive contract and
Fleer had to quickly halt production of this card making it a significant
SHORT PRINT. Only a few made it out to the public. This card is quite rare,
hardly ever seen and a plain old simple checklist making it the perfect
candidate for counterfeiting.
Other interesting cards are those that picture Ted with Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, Sam Snead and Jim Thorpe. In addition, cards of Ted fishing or with his airplane are also very popular.

1974 Topps StampsThe 1974 Topps Stamps set contains (240) 1x1-1/2 inch stamps, 10 from each team. The unnumbered stamps show the player's photo with name, team & position inside a colored oval near the bottom. Issued in horizontal 12-stamp panels (2 rows of 6), the panels came in different combinations of rows so there are actually 24 different panels (w/288 stamps) in a complete 1974 Topps Stamps panel set.
So player collectors - your favorite may appear on 2 different panels !!!
This issue was cursed with production problems. Centering is horrible with most panels having little or no border on one side or the other. In addition, perforations on most panels were not in the proper place.
1974 Topps stamps are easily confused with 1969 Topps stamps. With a somewhat similar player selection, the major difference is 1974's oval vs 1969's banner at the bottom. Also 1969 stamps came in both vertical & horizontal panels.
To store the stamps, Topps supposedly issued a set of 24 albums, one for each team. Each album contained a complete 10-stamp team set. I say "supposedly" because I've never actually seen one in person and the very few I've seen online often state "test issue" when describing them. ??? But there was supposed to be one in each pack ??? Where are they ??? The 1969 albums, also 1 per pack, are all over the place. I'm guessing they may not have actually been released.
The set is packed with SuperStars including over 23 Hall-of-Famers
including greats Nolan Ryan, Hank Aaron,Johnny Bench, Ernie Banks,
Pete Rose, Reggie Jackson, Al Kaline, Joe Morgan, Willie Stargell,
Tom Seaver & more !!! Also making appearances are seldom seen ROOKIES
of Dave Winfield and Dave Parker.
