Q5: What are some useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?

(part 1)
Certificate Of Authenticity - a document that is used to verify the legitimacy of a collectible. In reality, it is worthless, unless it shares a counterfeit- proof serially-numbered hologram that is attached to the item, and the certificate bears the signature of a notary public, or written verification by the manufacturer.

Common - any card which is not short-printed, an insert, a bonus card, or has an insertion ratio. In short, the cards that comprise the manufacturer’s basic set.

Condition - the physical appearance of a card/collectible. Centering, corner wear, photo clarity, edges, the presence of foreign material, signs of misuse are the critical components. Along with rarity/scarcity, it is a major factor in determining the value of a card or collectible.

Crease - an obvious paper wrinkle defect usually caused by bending the card [i.e.- the result of being tortured on a rear-wheel bicycle spoke during the early ‘50s and ‘60s].

Die-Cut - an insert/parallel card that differs from the basic card by a process of the manufacturer "cutting" portions of the card revealing a special design. Recent issues may also be individually and serially-numbered.

1958 Hires Root Beer

Hires Root Beer issued this 66 card set back in 1958. The cards came with an attached advertising tab. Cards with their tab intact are extremely difficult to find and thus are quite expensive. The actual card size varies from 2-3/8 in. to 2-5/8 in. wide and 3-3/8 in. to 3-5/8 in. high without the tab. Cards are numbered from #10 thru #76 with #69 not issued.

The card design - a wood grain "knot hole" through which the player is viewed - is a collector's favorite and was brought back by Bowman for their 2003 Bowman Heritage product. Although small at only 66 cards, the set did contain it's share of cards of Hall-of-Famers and Superstars such as Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Pee Wee Reese, Don Drysdale, Richie Ashburn, Bill Mazeroski, Duke Snider, Larry Doby, Don Newcombe and others...

1993 Topps Finest Refractors

In 1993 Topps raised the bar on premium cards with their 199-card issue of 'Hi-Tech' chrome like baseball cards - 1993 Topps Finest with 'Refractors'. Part of what made the 1993 Topps Finest set so appealing is that it was limited to just 199 cards instead of Topps usual 792 to 850+. 199 cards - just enough for the top 7 players per team. With the entire set filled with stars and minor stars, Topps set Finest apart as their top or ‘Finest’ set. Not only was this the 'Finest' set ever but it had only the 'Finest' players !

Randomly inserted in some of the packs were rare hi-gloss 'Refractors'. 'Refractors' looked so much like the regular card that Unless you knew what to look for you could miss them. It is thought that only 241 'Refractors' were made of each card making them one of the first and one of the scarcest insert parallel issues. 'Refractors' are in high demand even today and often get sky high prices on both graded and ungraded cards.

Set is packed with superstars like Nolan Ryan, Ken Griffey Jr., Cal Ripken, Ozzie Smith, Don Mattingly, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, George Brett, ...
