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...

Ways to sell your baseball cards

Vintage Sportscard Auction
2 reasons auctions are popular way to sell vintage sports cards.
#1 Desirable items tend to get top dollar (or better !)
#2 Everything goes

... or can be very bad - Everything gone, but at super low prices
OTHER WAYS TO SELL YOUR CARDS
•eBay Buy-it-Now •card store •swap meet
•Craigslist •garage/yard sale
or •DONATE to a charity for tax write-off
Not selling but perhaps easiest with possible $$$ return.
#1) You are one of the RARE tax payers left in America
#2) You have mostly late 80's & 90's "junk"
Consider donating the "junk" and keep better stuff to sell later.
Tax deduction was based on LESSER of "what-it-cost" & "What-it's-Worth".
For "What-it's-Worth", I use Beckett which can be higher than what you paid.
Check with your tax guy.

Protecting and Storing your Card Collection
There are many different ways to protect, organize and store your sports cards.
also called "penny sleeves" are the most basic protection for your cards.
Made of thin plastic, they come in packs of 100 and are very inexpensive.
are rigid plastic holders and a step up in protection over "soft sleeves".
Called top-loads because you place the card thru a thin opening at the top.
They come in many sizes for regular cards upto 8-1/2 x 11 for magazines and
Screw-Down Acrylic Holders
These are sometimes used for better, more expensive cards. Small screws hold
two pieces of clear acrylic together. In a variety of sizes and thickness
that not only protect the card but can funciton as a paper weight or display
There are also Single-Screw Screw-Downs that use only 1 screw to seal the holder.
They are easier to use and provide the same type of protectionas regular screwdowns
and they are also much less expensive costing as little as .30 in quantity
while 1 inch or 2 inch acrylic screw-downs can cost upto several dollars.
