1974 Topps DECKLE EDGE
Checklist & Values


This scarce 72-card test issue set was released with very limited East Coast distribution making them quite scarce. Officially simply called "Topps Baseball Photos", their serrated or "DECKLED" edge gave them the name they go by today. The 2 7/8" x 5" inch cards were sold in 2 card packs with gum or 3 card packs without for 5 cents.

Fronts are similar to b&w Exhibit Postcards from the 50's with photos and facsimile autographs. The backs make this very scarce test issue more interesting ! They feature handwritten script of player's name, team, position & date and location of the photograph as well as a mock newspaper article.

This was Topps 2nd "Deckle Edge" issue, their first being the smaller and more common 1969 Topps Deckle Edge inserts in 1969 Topps packs.

Variations of 1974 Topps Deckle Edge exist, making this issue more fun and challenging to collect. Backs can be found in gray or a much scarcer white. Also, more limited proof versions with non-scalloped edges exist and can be found with and without card numbers.

The cards showcase some of the baseball's most interesting highlights in it's first 100 years. The 80 card 1961 Nu card Scoops set is numbered from 401-480.

1991 Cardboard Dreams Baseball Cards
Checklist & Values


1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #1 1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #2 Neat little oddball set with interesting fronts & backs with a very unusual mix of players.     Cards issued as promotional lead-in for "Cardboard Dreams" a new soon to be issued sportscard magazine. The cards were given out at Southern California and a couple of larger regional baseball card shows in random 1-card packs.
Shortly before magazine's 1st issue, MLB began several lawsuits against similar magazines. Soon after, plans for the magazine were dropped leaving just the small run of promotional cards (said to be 5,000) and some scarce proofs. 1991 Cardboard Dreams Ryan back

Are sports cards valuable ?

Like all collectibles, over time some sports cards go down in value, others go up and some can even become very valuable. Card values are based on many factors: player popularity, scarcity, condition & collector interest. A card can be scarce but without demand value may not be great.

Q: What are some ways to collect cards ? * Complete sets by year & issue
* Cards of your favorite player
* Cards of your favorite team "TEAM SETS"
* Rookie cards
* Hall-of-Famer cards
* I even had a girlfriend that collected Don Mossi (checkout his ears), players whose last name start with "Z", and the Brett brothers George & Ken (she had a crush on George).
* "TYPE COLLECTING" (everyone should at least do a little of this !)

"Type Collecting"
is collecting at least one of each different "type" of issue. On scarcer issues you can add a less expensive common while on others you can select your favorite player or team.
