1969 Topps StampsFollowing stints as inserts in 1961 and 1962, stamps finally arrived with their own issue in 1969 ! A nickel for a 12-stamp strip plus a mini album !!!
The 1969 Topps Stamps set contained (240) 1x1-7/16 inch unnumbered stamps with player's photo and name,team & position inside a colored banner. The stamps were released in both horizontal (2 rows of 6) & vertical (2 columns of 6). 1969 Topps Stamps are often confused with Topps' 1974 issue. The 1974 Stamps have ovals rather than banners at bottom and came only in horizontal 12-stamp panels.
To store the stamps, Topps issued a set of 24 mini albums, one for each team. The booklets were the same size as a baseball card and held a complete 10-stamp team set. More fun for kids, the back cover had facsimile autographs of all the players in the team set. The design is nearly identical to the Topps 1969 football 4-in-1 stamp booklets.
The 1969 Topps Stamps set is packed with stars like Pete Rose and tons of Hall-of-Famers including MICKEY MANTLE, Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente & many more !!!

1974 Topps DECKLE EDGEThis 72-card test issue set was released with a very limited distribution only the East Coast around Massachusetts making them quite scarce. They were officially simply called "Topps Baseball Photos" but their serrated or "DECKLED" edge gave them the name they go by today. The 2 7/8" x 5" inch cards were sold in either a 2 card pack with gum or a 3 card pack with no gum for 5 cents.

The fronts look similar to the black and white Exhibit Postcards from the 50's and 60's featuring a photo with a facsimile blue autograph. The backs make this very scarce test issue even more interesting ! They feature handwritten script of the player's name, team, position & date and location of the photograph as well as a mock newspaper article on the player's career.
This was Topps 2nd "Deckle Edge" issue, their first being the smaller and much more common 1969 Topps Deckle Edge which were inserts in certain 1969 Topps packs.
Variations of 1974 Topps Deckle Edge do exist, making this issue even more fun and challenging to collect. The backs can be found in either gray or a much scarcer white version. Also, a more limited proof version with non-scalloped edges exists and can be found with and without card numbers.

Vintage Baseball Card Auction terminology
Register: You give us your name, address and email so we can contact you after the auction with your winning bids.Click for more info on my Weekly Vintage BASEBALL CARD AUCTIONS
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.
1971 Kellogg's1971, Kellogg's second and by far scarcest and most valuable set, contained 75 different players on 2 ¼” by 3 ½” cards. The cards were plastic coated giving them a 3-D look !!! The plastic coating also made high grade cards nearly impossible find. Over time and the elements, most cards would curl making light and heavy cracks very common.
As opposed to Kellogg's other issues which were available from the company as complete sets, 1971 Kellogg's cards were ONLY available one in each specially marked box of Kellogg's cereal. The only way to complete your 1971 Kellogg's set was to pester mom to buy, buy, buy more boxes of cereal.
In addition to the 75 different players, numerous scarcer variations exist
with minor differences in the stats on back. In addition, all 75 cards and
some variations are found with 2 different forms of copyright on the back:
The "toughest" cards appear to be: # 7 Alou (1970 Oakland NL) # 28 Wright (Angles Crest Logo) # 54 Johnson (Angles Crest Logo) # 64 Fregosi (Angles Crest Logo) # 70 Osteen (No Number on back) # 2 Seaver (ERA 2.81) # 41 Gaston (113 Runs) # 65 Rose (RBI 485)
