So WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?

Earlier in the week I got a Hockey card from Ebay which was the O-Pee-Chee version of a Topps card I have. Collectors that specialize in Hockey know very well that the Canadian printed O-Pee-Chee cards have always paralleled the Topps cards from that year. Now a days it is easy to tell the difference because of the branding on the front, but for many years the only way to tell was information on the back. If there was French writing anywhere on the back it was the OPC version. Sometimes only the copyright line let you know if your card was from Topps or from OPC. Now if your card was off center like my Topps card is on the back (without the copyright line) then you would have ether have other cards from that same set, or do some research to find out the differences. Usually there is a card stock difference as well.

Any way....

Which one is Which?

The first one on top the one that is slightly darker (at least my copies) is the OPC the second one Topps. From that front you can't tell which is which. Now looking at the back you can tell right away.

I hate the fine print on these modern cards. I also hate all the embossing and shiny printing that may look pretty but you can't read for carp (to put it nicely). That is one of the reasons I hate the chrome stuff, you can't read anything because it's all reflecting and refracting in the light.

And Now for Some Vintage Non-Sport From 1953 Topps.

World On Wheels
1953 TOPPS


This Non-Sport series is made up of classic cars, sport cars, military vehicles and futuristic looking cars. The designs remind me of the pictures on the boxes of old model car kits.

I got 4 of these from Ebay a little while back. Took me a while to remember to scan them and then come up with something to say about them.

user posted image


My favorite of the four is the first one card #38 Kenz Twin Ford.

user posted image

It reminds me of the cars the bad guys like Snake would drive in the Speed Racer Cartoons.

The basic low-down on this set is Topps released series one cards 1 - 160 in 1953 they have info about the subject car in the picture on the back. There is another little trivia box on the back that talks about something else entirely.

user posted image


Series two contains cards 161 - 180 and were released in 1954 I don't have any of those yet. Cards 161-170 have the same Red Backs like series one and cards 171-180 are the Blue Backs. At least that is what my research on these has shown me so far. I'll know for sure if I ever get the rest of the series.

I say more about this set on my Trading Cards Blog

GLADIATORS AUSTRALIAN STYLE

From Ebay I got 4 promo cards from the Australian "Gladiators" TV show. I'm not sure of the number of cards in the set but it's the Australian version of the show which those of us in the USA would know as "American Gladiators"

I give a brief explanation on my Cards Blog American Gladiators UMM Australian Post. The most attractive one is this first one:

1967? Stancraft NFL Playing Cards
user posted image


One of my pet projects is to get the set of these sweet 1960s/70s cards. A little back history on them. In 1965 Photographer and Artist David Boss made a series of paintings that would become the first set of NFL team posters. These paintings were then put on the game programs the following season, and either then or in the next year (1967) put on playing cards. At the time the NFL just had 16 teams. The AFL was a different entity so those teams are not part of this set.

The blog The Fleer Sticker Project has most if not all of the pictures of these paintings. He has a link to a Dallas Cowboys collector who pointed him out to these card decks. I've known about these decks since around the time they came out as my brother had (and probably still does have) a deck of the Washington Redskins. We played with that deck about as much as we did with all the other playing card decks we had in our house which meant we wore them out.

In recent years I have gotten the Los Angeles Rams deck. Still sealed but without a box. I am on the hunt for a deck with the box.
user posted image


More recently I got the Green Bay Packers deck complete with box.
user posted image

user posted image


There are two types of Jokers that were produced. Now according to Mr. Cowboy they are different because one is the Poker Sized Version and the other Bridge sized He calls "Nu-Vue Style" (I think "Nu-Vue" actually referrers to the plastic coating or possibly the manufacturer). However his explanation doesn't quite work because His "Poker" style image clearly says "Bridge" on the Ace of Spades card he shows. The joker from that style is what my Rams deck is, I don't know about the Ace of Spades because my deck is sealed and only the Joker is showing in the back. My Packers deck which I got open with the box and both jokers has the style of Ace of Spade and Joker he calls "Nu-Vue Style". Now both of my decks are the same size card. The box for the Packers deck says "Bridge Size" on the bottom side. So both of my decks are Bridge sized. Until I get a Poker sized deck I won't be sure they had that size. If they do then my quest is doubled.

I think it is more likely that this Joker:
user posted image


Is the original version and decks that come in boxes should have that style joker and the similar Ace of Spades. The other Aces are regular styled playing cards.

While this Joker:
user posted image


Is either a later version, or the version for decks sold just in the plastic shrink wrap. These decks would have been displayed in a special display box or bin about 50 or so decks in the display depending on the size of the display box.

It is interesting to not that for the box, at least in the case of my Packers Deck, the card design on the box is an actual card glued to the box (The 9 of Diamonds for my box). I'm trying to remember if my brother's deck was the same way. I think his had been bought with the box, and it might have been the same kind of deal (pardon the pun).

So I am on the hunt for the other 14 teams (and a Rams deck in box). My requirements are they must be a full deck complete with both jokers and the box. I prefer the cool Joker version like I have with the Packers deck. I might consider some decks without a box (which will probably have the boring joker) but they must be complete and with both jokers. To fill in the gaps I might get some of those "single" cards that pop up every once in a while on Ebay just to have one of each kind of back. That will not complete the quest for 16 full decks though.

Those are cool also, but I've noticed they are very expensive and out of my price range, due to having the players on the cards. There are two styles of the card backs on those.

1970 Topps Super


Not sure if I've mentioned these in my Mail day threads or not (It is in my TCC Blog but not with scans). Their backs are similar to the regular Topps release that year:

There are only 35 of these puppies, I've got 32 to go. When I was a kid I had several of these. I thought I had one or two left, not sure where they went. These 3 I had gotten from Ebay I think a few months back. Just getting around to scanning them.

1974 FLEER NFL Hall Of Fame series
(AKA: The Immortal Roll)


I already mentioned this set on Post #38 when I got the Sammy Baugh card. Way back in 1974 when I first got a handful of these cards (The four I had were: Bill Hewitt, Robert "Cal" Hubbard, Sid Luckman and Pete Pihos). I think they were packaged by themselves and only came the four per pack, or they were packaged 1 or 2 with 2 cloth stickers. I'm not 100% sure. They might have been alone because I also have some "Pioneers of Baseball" cards which were produced around the same time that I had only had four of. Either that or I bought the same amount of packs of both series. Which would have been weird for me as a kid. I have since gotten that full baseball set so I have dupes of my Original four)

I have 17/50 of this unnumbered set. The 1975 set is very similar but they are numbered, plus their borders are all brown more like the baseball set.

Anyway: here are some of my faves from this set , other than the Sammy Baugh card which I had previously shown in post #38. The striping effect is my scanner, or the effect of shrinking the scans down from the original size.

Very cool looking cards! The design of the cards look even older than the 70's. Awesome!

And the WHITE WHALE:

1982 Topps Baseball #21 - Baltimore Orioles Future Stars Bob Bonner - Cal Ripken - Jeff Schneider for $12.24 delivered ($10.25 + $1.99 standard shipping)

user posted image


This card is often considered to be Cal's Official RC, as well as the usually more expensive 1982 Topps Traded #98T

Good/Great just a tad less than Excellent condition (a little corner flaking)

Bad delivered in PWE (with a forever stamp) and in an UltraPro "Cardsaver" (Like the pic below) no penny sleeve UGH. I gave only 3 stars (I wanted to give only 2.5 or less) for shipping on the feedback I said I expected a little more than a PWE for the shipping charged.

I transferred it to a penny sleeve and toploader.

Thanks Mike.

I'm glad the vintage has some fans. I think some of these modern collectors who are only digging for the $$$ GUs and Hot Rookie Chromes are missing out on a lot of card appreciation.
