Autographed Gateway Cachets


Autographed Gateway Silk cachets
Gateway Stamp Company has provided collectors over 1 MILLION authenticated certified autographs over the last 30+ years. Though a "stamp company", Gateway rarely dealt in stamps, going down a new creative road becoming one of the world's unique secrets in autograph collecting. They combined the best in art, color photographs, historical events and autographs with their full-color silk cachet envelopes. Gateway's first client was Cardinals Hall of Famer Lou Brock and hundreds followed.

WHAT ARE FULL-COLOR SILK CACHETS?
A "cachet" is a design on an envelope marking an event. "Full-color silk" refers to the delicate material into which the art and photography are printed. After the silk artwork is applied it's signed by the player and then officially post-marked by the U.S. Post Office IN THE CITY OF THE EVENT !!!

WHY POSTMARKS?
The key to EVERY Gateway cachet is the postmark. A postmark is a great way to mark historical events. The rules governing the granting of postmarks GUARANTEE that NO Gateway issue can EVER be re-issued protecting the value of the autographed cachets !!!

Vintage Topps 1956 Baseball Cards
Checklist & Prices


1956 Topps Wax Box 1956 Topps Wax Pack 1956 Topps were again slightly larger (3-3/4" by 2 5/8") horizontal cards similar to 1955 Topps cards, some even sharing portraits with 1954 and 1955 Topps cards. Team cards & checklists appeared for the first time in 1956.

With Bowman gone, after missing the last 3 years, Mickey Mantle was back !!! A fun & simple set, 1956 Topps had no high numbers or expensive rookies but for serious 1956 collectors, there are over 200 variations, making things extremely difficult for master set collectors. Most variations deal with card stock (gray or white backs).
... rumor has it #101-180 the gray outnumber white about 9-to-1.

There were also several cards with color line variations including Ted Williams, Whitey Ford & Early Wynn. In addition, many team cards had 2 or 3 variations with team names Left, Center or Right.

1956 Topps Hank Aaron 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle
Just a few uncorrected errors, the most famous is card #31 Hank Aaron which actually pictures Willie Mays sliding home ! Card #135 Mickey Mantle is also an interesting card. Mantle leaps high into the stands robbing a home run ! The artist did a great job showing Mantle making the catch ! An awesome play to put on this great card - right ?
BUT ... was this the first "FAKE BASEBALL CATCH" ?
Problem is in real life, Mantle did look great leaping but the ball flew over his glove. 1956 Topps Mickey Mantle Catch
And as always for vintage Topps sets, don' miss Don Mossi and his famous ears !

1956 Topps collectors will love Topps '1956 Topps Pins' which used the same portrait photos as the cards.

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.
