1952 Wheaties Champions
In 1952 Wheaties issued this set of cards on the back of their boxes.
The 2" x 2-3/4" cards needed to be hand cut from the back of the boxes
making high quality samples almost impossible to find. The set featured
30 different champions from a variety of sports in both "Portrait" and "In-Action"
poses for a total of 60 different cards. 10 of the 30 athletes are baseball players
with football, basketball, golf, bowling, diving and other sports also
Top players in the set are Ted Williams, Stan Musial, George Mikan,
Ben Hogan and Otto Graham.
1955 Topps Double-Headers (Doubleheaders)
Baseball Cards Set checklist/info
The Best !!!
Without a doubt my FAVORITE SET - PERIOD. Regular issue, test issues,
inserts ... whatever ... this is # 1 !!!
Similar to the early 1900's Mecca Double Folders, these colorful
2-1/16" x 4-7/8" cards are actually 2-cards-in-1 !
Perforated in the center, you can fold to create cards of 2
different players. Unperforated 1955 Topps DoubleHeaders exist.
All 132 players (66 cards) in the 1955 Topps DoubleHeaders set were also in
the regular 1955 Topps set, with the same action image.
NOTE: Laid side-by-side the cards form spectacular scenes
from actual stadiums !!!
Old-timers - can you identify the stadiums ?
Harmon Killebrew, Hal Newhouser
Ted Williams, Hank Aaron, Jackie Robinson ...

Baseball card collecting terms (part D-F)
Die-Cut A special card that differs from a basic card by
"Die-Cutting", cutting away portions of the card to create a special design.
Most are serially numbered & limited.
Error Card Baseball card history is filled with error cards,
many of them very interesting. Hank Aaron is on 2 of my favorite error cards.
Aaron's 1956 Topps card action photo shows Aaron sliding home but
it is actually Willie Mays not Aaron. Topps again goofed on Aaron's 1957
"reversed negative" card showing Aaron batting left-handed.
"Error Cards" are usually found early in print runs and often corrected.
When this correction happens a VARIATION is created.
Some variations are extremely interesting and very expensive while others
are totally boring and you wonder why they were even made.
Extended Set Also frequently called Update Set or
They are sets issued after the original release to update the regular set
with new and traded players.
Facsimile Autograph is an autograph printed on a card to show
what the player's actual signature looks like. They are not "real" autographs.
Factory Set are complete sets usually in special boxes
produced by the manufacturer. "Hand-Collated Sets" are sets collectors
have put together card by card from packs.
