74 Topps "Say Hey" Willie Mays (Last card made of him)

I'm surprised nobody else mentioned this but that card showing is 1973 not '74, but you are right '73 was his last card. Technically he was on a '74 card but it wasn't his it was the World Series Game #2 card.

Here is what a '74 card looks like:
1974 Topps Willie MoCovey "Washington National League"
user posted image

The Padres were rumored to be moving to DC in late '73. Topps thought it (the move) was a sure thing. They produced 15 Padres cards with the "Washington Nat'l Lea." as the team name since a new name hadn't been picked yet. The cards are the same as the regular Padres cards only the team name on the front is different the backs stayed the same. The Washington Variation although rarer is not too difficult to complete a set of now with the internet. Before the internet it was more difficult.

For a long time this card was the "Oldest" card in my entire Trading Card collection (Sports and Non-Sports). I tell a bit about it on my Trading Card Blog


1960 TOPPS Football Ralph Guglielmi - Redskins
user posted image

Yes that crease across his midsection does have some clear tape over it to keep the card together. It's that big crease on the back that goes across the middle of what should be a scratch off cartoon, except it was over scratched years ago. Some of that staining on the back might be from rubber cement from the days when the card was housed in a photo album. The poor card was abused long ago.

Now I have some cards from the 1950s so I'm not sure of the year of my oldest card as I also have a handful of Non-Sport tobacco cards (I think I mention them in my TCCBlog somewhere). I think my oldest now is a "Girl of the World" (or some similar title) from the 1930s I think. I need to recheck when I think about it. It is not high on the priorities for my collection though.

Yes I've got both of those. Problem was they were very popular right then (1974) and in school those were the cards you showed off. So mine are a little roughed up. I bought a complete set also that year from Larry Fritsch but they were the corrected San Diego version.

The Ruth I believe is from a set in 63, not sure on the name, where the cards came in a booklet with many of the greats of the game. I have a few others from the set but the Ruth is by far my favorite.

Ben,

Found where the Ruth came from via checkout my cards. 1961 Golden Press. Then did a Google search to verify in case comc was off on some of the info.

This auction site? shows the book cover http://sports.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=47051&lotNo=12214

Here is an online visual checklist. Virtual Card Collection 1961 Golden Press

It's a beautiful set.


What I Collect
I'm mostly about the Washington DC area (and Baltimore) Sports teams and Vintage plus Non-Sport.
Strive For '65 194/598 (w/variants 196/600)
RANDOM ACTS OF CARDNESS : Look for latest contest.

Thank you Kirk for the info. I knew the set came from the early 60's just not exactly sure when. After looking at the virtual card collection I have more to the set than I thought at first. I think these cards are my favorites of my collection and always will be.
