Classic Sports Card Sets: Best Sport Cards Sets from the 1950s and 1960s Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Classic Sports Card Sets features overviews of the best sports card sets in baseball, basketball and football produced in the hobby glory days of the 1950s and 1960s. With names such as Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, Wilt Chamberlain and Johnny Unitas creating headlines for their play at the time, these cards provide a link to some of the greatest athletes to ever put on a uniform. This is not just a checklist of top cards, but rather a look at the era the cards were produced, the intangibles of each set, along with photos, variations, insight, checklists and values for the cards.

You'll also learn why certain cards are harder to find than others, why it's hard to find high-grade examples of certain cards and some quirks that card companies have produced in the sets over the years. Plus, get industry experts' thoughts on the sets and where they rank in the overall picture of the sports cards hobby. A great review and guide to the sports cards of the 1950s and ?60s.
