Q7: What are some additional useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?
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.
Vintage Baseball Card Auction terminology

2 Types of Bidding: There are 2 ways to bid in the auction.
Minimum or Starting bid: On expensive auction items, there is no point in auction bids starting at .25 and going up by .25 taking perhaps 100 such bids to reach even 10% of value. Thus some items in auctions have a "Minimum" or "Starting Bid".
Reserve bid: "Reserve" auction bids come into play once an auction is over. If the final "Hammer" price is less than the "Reserve" bid then there is no sale. I do not find this type of auction bidding very bidder friendly.
1968 Topps Action All-Star Stickers
Another one of my favorite Topps test issues !!!
In 1968, trying to catch the fancy of young collectors, Topps produced a set of
"Baseball Action Stickers", often called "Action All-Stars Stickers".
It was a big year for Topps test/oddball issues. Topps 1968 offerings also included Game cards,
Player Posters, 3-D cards, Plaks, Discs and Punchouts.
Auction's most costly vintage baseball cards
The auction history of vintage baseball cards is long and colorful.Click for more info on my Weekly Vintage BASEBALL CARD AUCTIONS
The 1909-1911 T-206 Honus Wagner tobacco card has been auctioned
reaching as high as 2.8 million in one auction.
Often called the "Holy Grail of Sports Cards", to me it's
super-high auction value can mostly be attributed to good PR and
"auction fever". It is not even close to being the rarest baseball
card and Honus Wagner was not the most popular or important player.
Yes, the T-206 set is beautiful and special in it's own right but because
of it's huge size and many scarcities, it is not one many collector's
ever try to complete, which should keep auction competition way down
compared to say the 1933 Goudey or 1952 Topps baseball card issues.
There is a back story about Wagner banning his card because of his anti-tobacco stance but there are other stories about a more financial consideration.
I am sure you have all heard of the grading company PSA. You may also already have heard that this card was the FIRST card graded by PSA. But did you know that a dealer (B... .a...o) admitted in court to tampering with the card, perhaps by trimming it down to size, before PSA graded it so highly before it was placed in the auction ?
