Baseball card production was virtually halted in the early 1940's due to paper shortages created by World War II. The "Modern Era" of baseball cards began in 1948 when Bowman Gum Inc. offered one card and one piece of gum in a pack for a penny.
The first important football set was the Mayo set featuring college players in 1984. Other than the 1935 National Chicle set no other key football set was issued until 1948 when noth Bowman and Leaf produced sets.
1955 Topps Double-Headers (Doubleheaders)
Without a doubt this is my favorite set - PERIOD. Regular issue, test issues,
inserts ... whatever ... this is # 1 !!!
1963 Topps Peel-Offs (stickers)Another of the interesting Topps Issues of the 1960's !
Topps inserted these Peel-Offs (stickers) also called Stick-Ons in several of series of their 1963 Topps baseball cards. Interestingly, the Peel-Offs inserts were not mentioned or advertised on wax pack wrappers in 1963.
The complete 1963 Topps Peel-oFFs set is packed with HALL-OF-FAMERS and contains 46 stickers measuring 1-1/4" x 2-3/4". The Peel-Offs come in 2 distinct variations. They can be found either with instructions printed on the back or the much scarcer blank-back variation.
The Peel-Offs have with an approx. 3/16" "white" band running left to right across the mug shot. This band appears to be lighter than the printing above and below it. Theory is that it is an aging effect caused by the backing strip.
TOP STARS: Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Sandy Koufax, Stan Musial, Al Kaline, Carl Yastrzemski, Ernie Banks and tons MORE !!!

1963 Topps Baseball Peel-Offs Stickers checklist and prices
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.
1963 Bazooka ALL-TIME GREATSIn 1963, competitive pressures compelled Topps to add a bonus to it's 1963 Bazooka boxes. These cards were inserted inside boxes of Bazooka bubblegum at 5 per box. The 41-card set of Hall-of-Famers features black and white photos of the player inside a gold plaque. A short biography appears on the back, a first (and last) for Bazooka. The 41 numbered cards measure 1 9/16" by 2 1/2". Scarcer silver colored plaques also exist.
