1961 Topps #2 Roger Maris Yankees PSA 8.5 pop 10How many kids had this card taped to their bedroom wall during the magical summer of 1961?  Plenty.  While Roger Maris and Mickey Mantle chased Babe Ruth’s single-season home run record, kids opened packs of 1961 Topps baseball cards, hoping to pull one of their cards.  Their fondness for the shy slugger from North Dakota, and propensity for handling his card, tacking it up on a wall or just turning it over and over

Kids who opened up the first packs of Topps inaugural Major League Baseball set in 1952 probably didn't notice.  They were too busy looking at the giant pictures, looking for Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays or Duke Snider, flipping the giant pieces of cardboard with friends or putting them in bicycle spokes.  They didn't see that the #80 card, Reds pitcher Herman Wehmeier, always had something imperfect about it. Usually, it was the centering, although that’s not likely a topic you heard on too many playgrounds in

1969 Topps Mickey Mantle White Letters Variation Yankees PSA 5In the weeks after Mickey Mantle left baseball, kids reached for packs of 1969 Topps Baseball and found his last card.  His retirement announcement had come too late to pull him from production but few cared.  It kind of provided a cap on Mantle’s time in baseball with the back showing no fancy prose, just a big block of incredible career statistics.  Sharp-eyed collectors who bought a lot of cards that year also

T206 Hub Perdue Southern League Nashville PSA 1 Hindu BackCollecting T206 cards is one thing.  Collecting the various variations of advertising that show up on the backs of the 1909-1911 issue is quite another.  Years ago, few collectors really cared much about what tobacco brand’s sales pitch was on the back.  The player pictured on the front was all that mattered.
