Q5: What are some useful to know baseball card collecting terms ?
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.
When I was a kid, I loved grocery shopping with my mom in the
hope that I would find my next favorite food - you know the one,
of course the one that came with baseball cards !!!
Well thanks to Armour, back in 1955 kids were able to enjoy hot dogs
along with there baseball collectibles.
1968 Topps Action All-Star Stickers
Another one of my favorite Topps test issues !!!
In 1968, trying to catch the fancy of young collectors, Topps produced a set of
"Baseball Action Stickers", often called "Action All-Stars Stickers".
It was a big year for Topps test/oddball issues. Topps 1968 offerings also included Game cards,
Player Posters, 3-D cards, Plaks, Discs and Punchouts.
Auction's Rarest Vintage Baseball Cards
Rare baseball cards and auctions were made for each other !
1951 Bowman Baseball1951 was Bowman's largest set to date, both in the card size and number of cards. Thanks to the several major rookies, led by Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays, the 1951 Bowman set is by far Bowman's most valuable.
Bowman again used hand-painted color reproductions of actual photographs. The 1951 Bowman card fronts were very similar to the 1950 set, with several players 1951 Bowman cards look like larger versions of their 1950 card.
Cards #243-#324 are scarce high numbers. The rookie cards of Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays are in this series making them very difficult to obtain.
TOP ROOKIES: Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Whitey Ford, Monte Irvin, Nellie Fox,
Joe Garagiola, Jackie Jensen, Jim Piersall ...
