1948 Bowman Football Cards
Checklist & Values


1948 Bowman Football takes it's place in the early history of football cards. While not as flashy as the 1935 National Chicles football issue the 1948 Bowman Football set had great players in real photographs !

The set was tiny (in both card size and number of cards) containing only 108 smallish 2-1/16" x 2-1/2" inch cards. The honor of top rookie in the set is easily Sammy Baugh and there appear to be no variations in the set.

1968 Topps Action All-Star Stickers
Checklist & Values


Another awesome Topps test issue !!!   Trying to catch the fancy of young collectors, Topps issued the "Baseball Action Stickers" set, also called "Action All-Stars Stickers". 1968 was huge year for Topps with test/oddball issues of Game cards, Player Posters, 3-D cards, Plaks, Discs and Punchouts.

Topps 1968 "Baseball Action Stickers" were 3-panel sticker strips with PACKED with STARS: Mantle, Mays, Clemente ... (16) different three-panel stickers were in set but only 12 are totally different. #13 thru #16 re-used panels from #1 thru #12.

Each strip had (3) panels perforated at joint with a large player image in center and smaller pictures of players top & bottom. Some stickers had facsimile autographs. Strip was folded along perfs and placed in packs.

Sold in 10 cent 1-sticker packs with 12 packs/box, sets could be made for $1.60. Today, more than a mid four figures is needed with just the Mantle panel going for around $2,000.

Collectors often collect just individual panels as complete strips are so scarce, fragile & EXPENSIVE. The single panels are quite scarce themselves - in 20+ years PSA has graded over 200 TOTAL with pop reports as low as 4 to 5 of most. Compare that to over thousand 1952 Topps Mickey Mantles !!!

Proof sheets have shown up. This sheet is missing the facsimile autographs.

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.

Q7: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?

(part 3)
High Numbers - vintage cards were issued in the 50s-70s in a series. During the baseball season, the largest number of cards were made. As the schedule progressed into September, when there would be less interest in baseball cards , Topps for one, specifically decreased production and hence much less product was available. As a result, a scarcity-factor was created and a premium holds for these first type of "short-printed" cards.

Inserts - special randomly-inserted cards which are not part of the regular set. Many modern inserts are sequentially-numbered and rarer than the card sets into which they are inserted.

O-Pee-Chee / OPC - a subsidiary of Topps, this card issue was produced specifically for distribution in Canada.

Promotional Card - generally referred to as cards issued to show what the product will look like on release and intended to help spur future sales. Often called a "promo" card.

Reprint - cards issued to reproduce the originals. With the current trend of vintage reprints, the new versions have a distinguishing characteristic evidenced by numbering.

Restored - a card or piece of memorabilia which someone has tried to return to a "like-new" condition. A restored card is considered to be of very little value.

Rookie Card - any league-licensed, widely distributed card to feature a player in his first year of trading cards.

Series - a group of cards within an issue deliberately split up by the manufacturer to distribute at different times of the year. (i.e.- vintage 1st series cards 1-100 were released in April and 2nd series cards 101-200 were released in July, etc.).

Short Print (SP) - a card printed to a lesser quantity than other cards in a set. Many recent short prints are also individually & serially-numbered.
