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.
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.
1951 Bowman Baseball1951 was Bowman's largest set to date, both in the card size and number of cards. Thanks to the several major rookies, led by Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays, the 1951 Bowman set is by far Bowman's most valuable.
Bowman again used hand-painted color reproductions of actual photographs. The 1951 Bowman card fronts were very similar to the 1950 set, with several players 1951 Bowman cards look like larger versions of their 1950 card.
Cards #243-#324 are scarce high numbers. The rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays are in this series making them very difficult to obtain.

Vintage Baseball Wire Photos
Official authentic vintage UPI/AP Wirephotos/Laserphotos are very limited with
usually only 1 sent to each major newspaper. Transmitted electronically by the
UPI/AP only to subscribing newspapers for possible use in their sports sections,
the photos were printed in black & white on electro-static printers and are far from the
quality of photos we have become accustomed to. |
The photos were usually transmitted in 3 stages, CYAN, MAGENTA & YELLOW , which the newspaper, if they wanted, could then combine into a color photograph for their issue. Condition of most photos ranges from EX to NEAR MINT. As a bonus, some photos have the blue-line cropping marks made by editors prior to their appearing in the paper.
Scarce, interesting and a snapshot of history, most wire photos are of major subjects and moments in history and make great collectibles for player and team collectors ! Wirephotos and laserphotos are no longer transmitted in this manner (I believe they stopped in the early 1990's). Images are now transmitted directly from computer to computer with no need for an actual hardcopy photo to be produced.
Images of nearly all wirephotos are available. To save space and time, most were produced with a low resolution digital camera. The resulting images do not do the wirephotos justice. The wirephotos are much nicer than they appear in the images.
These are from the archives of the San Diego Union Tribune and will make a nice addition to your collection.
