BBM Sumo 大相撲 Card Collection 1997-2022
1. BBM Sumo 大相撲 Card Collection 1997-2022 
This album contains my collection of Japanese-licensed BBM (Baseball Magazine) sumo wrestling cards/sets, starting with BBM's sumo debut, the 1997 "Modern" set, to date. A description appears under the first entry for each year (in the far left column), and notes the number of cards in the set. Sets from 1997-2010 are represented by scans of 14 cards (7 cards for the more recent 2011-date sets) which include ALL active Yokozuna along with some of the other top/most popular rikishi cards of that year.  Also included are special/short printed cards that were randomly inserted in card packs (or "inserts") and were NOT part of the regular set. These insert cards, issued from 1997-2003, are displayed in the rows beneath the regular (or "base") sets they were issued with. The rank assigned in each card's description is the highest the pictured rikishi would achieve in his career, though not necessarily his rank in the card/year shown.
       Cards from 2004 through 2007 are particularly difficult to locate, as BBM sumo card production purportedly dropped significantly during this period--which is often referred to by advanced collectors, such as Ryan Laughton and Paul Fogarty, as the "Black Hole" or "Lost Years/Dead Era" of sumo card collecting. A possible reason for the 2004-07 scarcity is a decline of Japanese interest in the sport following the retirement of mega-popular native son Yokozuna Takanohana in 2003 (after he had two years of frequent kyujo in 2001-02). Also, beginning with the 2004 set, BBM reduced the base set size to 99 cards, and discontinued insert cards--obvious signs of less demand in their Sumo product during that time. The tough 2004 set also features the debut of future Yokozuna Hakuho- the all time record holder for victories and championships- who appears on two cards in the set (#65 & #88)--arguably the 2 most valuable base set sumo cards that BBM has ever produced.
     I have added some approximate current values for sets, insert sets and autographed cards underneath their descriptions. The values assigned are just my best guesses, as there is no price guide for sumo cards at the moment, and reflect my own purchase prices as well as my observations on recent transactions. At the bottom of the page, I have listed my autographed cards, SCM /BBM promo cards, and "other" BBM cards/subsets/inserts, JSA licensed postcards, as well as Heisei Era "Trump" sumo playing card decks, and BBM/NHK-issued Sumo DVDs. If anyone shares this collecting interest, I would heartily recommend the BBM Sumo Card Collectors page on Facebook:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/1630250003925942/     or you may contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com

Pro Wrestling Trading Card Collection
2. Pro Wrestling Trading Card Collection 
This is my collection of Pro Wrestling
trading card sets ranging from the 50's
thru the present. I have selected the
most valuable, or attractive cards in
a given set to represent it. On a few of the smaller sets, I have included all of the cards in the scan. My top 5 favorites are the 1985 Topps (Test) WWF 3-D, 1986 Carnation, 1984-89 LJN, 1988-2007 Ice Cream and the 2005 Heritage autograph sets. I have included my wrestling autographed inserts at the bottom of the page (my favorites are the extremely limited 2016 Dusty Rhodes and Roddy Piper autographs released after their untimely deaths the previous year). None are for sale, the values assigned are for my heirs. Email is supplex55@yahoo.com

Supplex55 Wrestling Territories Album
3. Supplex55 Wrestling Territories Album 
This album contains photos from various regional wrestling territories including the classic Vincent J. McMahon owned World Wide Wrestling Federation. WWWF photos range from 1963 to 1982 when the elder McMahon sold the Northeast based territory to his son Vincent K. McMahon. The WWWF was rebranded as the WWF in 1980. These photos are often called "Arena Promos" as many were sold at live event concession stands, while others were available through Wrestling magazines. Also included are photos from territories where the NWA Champion would defend his title (such as the WCCW, Mid-South, Jim Crockett Promotions, Mid-Atlantic, Memphis and Florida amongst others). Finally, included are promos from the Verne Gagne owned Midwest territory:the AWA. These photos date from the 1950's thru the late 1980's when the NWA was rebranded as the WCW, and the AWA folded. As many of the photos have no identifying logos or copyrights, descriptions contain my best guess of the territory and year the photo was issued in. Vintage Ladies Wrestling/GLOW/POWW section added at end of album, followed by my collection of 1960's and 1970's Boyd Pierce issued 3.5x5" postcard sized photos (possibly over 1000 were produced over this time period). My WWF and WCW promos have their own dedicated albums on this site. Over 50 are signed, including Hogan, Savage, Hennig, Rude, Race, Rhodes, Sensational Sherri and Ventura.

Supplex55 WWF Promo Photos:Unnumbered
4. Supplex55 WWF Promo Photos:Unnumbered  
Unnumbered WWF Promotional photos, featuring the WWF logo on the bottom left of the photo, began in 1983 (these do not carry a copyright date) and ran through 1993, with just a handful afterward. This album contains photos largely from the Classic 1980's Era, as b/w WWF promos began to be P-numbered in 1990, with color promos following in 1992. By 1993, almost all WWF promo photos (both Color and B/W) were issued in the P-numbered series until it's demise in 2008. Pre-1989 b/w photos generally have a "newspaper use only" notation at the bottom as that was their intended purpose. Color unnumbered WWF promo photos date from 1984-1992 (with a handful afterward) as by 1992 they had largely been transferred to the P-series. 1984 color promos are 8x10 while the majority of the later color photos are slightly larger at 8.25x11. Color promos, which i list first for each year, were used for promotional purposes such as signings, appearances, correspondences, or were for sale through the WWF Magazine. I have included WWF TV Network/PPV promos for yearbook purposes--at the end of each individual year's listings. Over 100 on this page have been signed--including Hogan, Savage, Undertaker, Piper, Vince McMahon and Ultimate Warrior.  If you have ones from this (my favorite) era available for sale, please contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com

Supplex55 WWF/WWE Promo Photos:P-Numbers
5. Supplex55 WWF/WWE Promo Photos:P-Numbers 
Old School P-series WWF/WWE promo photos 1990-2008. In 1990 the WWF began numbering their b/w promotional photos with a P-number on the right margin. Very few b/w photos produced after 1989 do not have a P-number. They began including color photos in 1992 and by 1993 virtually all WWF promo photos had a P-number. Discontinued in 2008, the P-Series is the most collected (and valuable) of all wrestling photos-some of the rarer photos of top stars have sold for hundreds of dollars in the past. Over 150 on this page have been signed, including Hogan, Undertaker, Austin, Rock, Flair and Ultimate Warrior. If you have any that I do not have (P001 through P756--I am concentrating on pre-WWE promos), please contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com and I will make you an offer.

Supplex55 WCW Promo Photo Album
7. Supplex55 WCW Promo Photo Album 
This album contains promo photos issued by World Championship Wrestling (WCW) beginning in November 1988, with it's purchase and rebranding by
Ted Turner from Jim Crockett (NWA/Jim Crockett Promotions), until it's purchase by the WWF in 2001. Promos from 1988 generally measure 4x5 and have no identifying text/copyrights.
Promos from 1989-90 (and a few from 1991) do not have a copyright date (some do not even have the WCW logo), as that information does not begin appearing on the photos until 1991. In addition, white background, color 8.5x11 photos were issued by the company in WCW folders from 1989-91 at events like the "Bruise Cruise".  Another oddity is that most promos prior to 1991 were 5x7 or 5x8 rather than the traditional 8x10 size (all on this page are 8x10 unless otherwise noted). While WCW promos do not command the same prices that vintage WWF promos do (there are fewer hardcore collectors), they are every bit as tough to locate-perhaps even more so than the more popular federation. Over 75 of these are signed, including all of the "Big Boys": Hulk, Flair, Savage, Sting, Rude, Vader, Nash etc....
If you have older 1989-1994 WCW-era promos available (I prefer the pre-Hogan/NWO era of WCW), please contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com.

10. Supplex55 Wrestling Licensed Photo Album 
This album contains licensed photos produced by Photo File (and similar companies) that are made available for sale in mass produced quantities through conventional outlets (websites, stores, vendors, etc.). They differ from promo photos as those were printed "in-house" by the issuing Wrestling Organization (in limited amounts, often not available to the public other than through promotional appearances, or live-event promoters). It also contains photos that are produced by Wrestling Organizations (or wrestlers) in conjunction with their various marketing partners. They include photos that advertise wrestling-related products like Toys, Foods, Games, Records, Conventions, Movies and TV Networks. Approximately 25 have been signed, including Savage, Elizabeth, Eddy Guerrero, and Cena.

WWF Arena Program Collection 1983-1998
13. WWF Arena Program Collection 1983-1998 
This is my collection of WWF-issued Arena Programs sold at live events throughout the country during the
Classic and New Generation eras of the company (1983-1998). Numbered #101-245, they were issued approximately 1 per month (bi-monthly from 1994 on) and included a paper insert with the wrestling card for that venue it was sold at. The WWF discontinued the unique programs following the 1998 Wrestlemania, and began to just reissue that month's WWF Magazine issue with the insert sheets at venues and PPVs.
At the bottom of the page are my
Pay-per-view programs (Wrestlemania, Royal Rumble, SummerSlam and Survivor Series) through the end of the WWF in
2002. If you have one of the programs I am missing (listed at the bottom of the page) please contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com

of Hulk Hogan in 1984 to the close of the Classic WWF era in 1992 with his departure and the rise of the New Generation. Also included are other Classic WWF Publications:WWF Superstars Annuals, Wrestling Spotlight, and WWF Official Biographies.  I have also put up pics of the classic WWF Arena and PPV Programs on a separate Imageevent page--ENJOY!

 1951-52 Parkhurst NHL Hockey Set
17. 1951-52 Parkhurst NHL Hockey Set 
This album contains my set of 1951-52 Parkhurst Hockey cards. I acquired the set at the 1985 National Sports Collector's Convention in Anaheim at the Disneyland Hotel from the original owner (a collector from Montreal). As I recall, I paid about 550.00 for the set and could not have been happier. Notably, the set features the first cards of Rocket Richard and Gordie Howe. I would grade it as about EX (with some better and a few worse, though none less than VG).

It is in a bit lesser condition due to being stored in a Parkhurst Album and would grade about VG or maybe a bit better. Some are autographed by players who visited the Forum and signed for the original owner. Set features the Rookie Card of Tim Horton.

The main rookie in 1954-55 Parkhurst Hockey is Johnny Bower, whose name is incorrectly spelled on the back. Since this was never corrected, there is no added value to the error. In the action subset, several cards of Jacques Plante are featured, which predate his official rookie card by one year. My set runs a solid Ex+ with many better.

The 1955-56 Parkhurst Hockey set was cut to 79 cards and only features players from the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens. Old-time Greats from both teams are included in the set. The key rookie in the set is Jacque Plante, even though he had already appeared on several action cards the previous year. Oddly, his photo features a rink background (other cards feature just a white background), is vertically oriented and is missing a team logo. My set grades at an average of Ex with a few VG and few a grade or two higher.

1957-58 Parkhurst  NHL Hockey set
22. 1957-58 Parkhurst  NHL Hockey set 
I purchased this set in the mid-80's from the same gentleman from Montreal that I bought the 1951-52 Parkhurst set from. He (as a kid) was able to obtain a few autographs from the players when he attended games at the Forum. The set is unusual in that both the Leafs and Habs cards are numbered separately 1-25, rather than collectively 1-50. The set also features the rookie cards of Hall of Famers Frank Mahovlich and Henri Richard. This set is also a return to hockey cards after a one-year layoff from Parkhurst, supposedly to assess the hockey card market. The U.S. NHL teams would be featured on Topps Hockey cards only for the rest of the decade. I would grade this set about EX/MT on average with a few higher, and none lower than EX.

The checklist is broken down among three of the NHL's teams: the Toronto Maple Leafs appear on cards 1 through 18, the Detroit Red Wings are on cards 19 through 34 and the Montreal Canadiens take up the rest of the set. Unlike previous Parkhurst sets, there are no coaches, action cards or specialty subsets. Parkhurst again re-uses many of the photos from the previous year.

There are 18 cards for each of the 3 Teams (Toronto, Montreal and Detroit) featured with each team's star having two cards (Mahovlich, Geoffrion and Howe). There are also two unnumbered cards:one card is a checklist, which is referred to as a Tally card. The other is a Zip card, which was a contest entry for one of 20 bicycles. These are quite rare and are (along with the 2 Howe cards) the most valuable in the set. My set grades about EX/MT with a few better (NM+) and a few which would grade EX.

1963-64 Parkhurst NHL Hockey set
28. 1963-64 Parkhurst NHL Hockey set 
For its final set, 1963-64 Parkhurst featured one of the most beautiful designs ever on a hockey card set. The Gordie Howe card is considered one of the most iconic cards ever produced. There was an emphasis given to the two Canadian teams, with two cards for nearly every player.
The fronts featured a player picture superimposed against a team-specific background design. Detroit Red Wings were shown with an American flag in the background, regardless of that player's actual birth nation. Toronto Maple Leafs were placed in front on the Red Ensign that served as the national flag at the time. Montreal Canadiens weren't given any flag, instead they had parallel bars as a background.
Key rookies in the 99-card set include Cesare Maniago, Red Berenson, Alex Faulkner, John Ferguson and Jacques LaPerriere. My set grades about Ex/MT with a few NM and a few EX.

I bought this set in the mid-80's from "Mr. Mint" Alan Rosen and could not have dreamed of finding one in better condition (due to the colored bottom borders, the 1954-55 Topps set is particularly tough to find in high grade). I would grade this set as Ex/Mt or better. This would be Topps' first Hockey set and featured only the 4 American teams as the 1954-55 Parkhurst set housed the 2 Canadian teams that year (and for the rest of the decade). Topps would return to hockey cards in 1957-58 after skipping the next two seasons.

1968-69 O Pee Chee Hockey set
41. 1968-69 O Pee Chee Hockey set 
1968-69 O-Pee-Chee Hockey saw the company issue its own separate set in Canada, rather than producing and distributing their cards under the Topps name. From this point forward, the sets would be differentiated between the two countries with O-Pee-Chee's being larger and having more subset and specialty cards than the Topps version (though many player photos were identical). Also, because they were printed in Canada, the backs would be written in two languages while Topps' cards would carry English-only text. The rookie card of Bernie Parent appears in this set. Set grades about EX/MT with the usual problematic centering issues for this set(particularly in the first series--#1-132).Second series cards (#133-216)boasted a bonus All-Star Pushout 22 card insert set (sometimes referred to as a Puck Sticker). A card paying tribute to Gordie Howe's 700th goal is also included in the puck sticker set.

In addition I have both insert sets displayed at the bottom of the page--the 4 in 1 cards, and the Player Stamps. The only notable rookies in the set are Tony Esposito and Serge Savard. I also have the complete 1969-70 Topps NHL Hockey set in Near Mint condition and have included a scan of the Topps Bobby Orr at the bottom of the page to represent that set.

45. 1972-73 O Pee Chee Hockey set 
The 1972-73 O Pee Chee NHL/WHA Hockey set's first series runs from cards 1 through 110 and the second includes 111 through 209. Each of these series is relatively plentiful, while series three contains cards 210 through 289 and is slightly scarcer.  The fourth series runs from cards 290 through 340 featuring players from the newly-formed WHA and was printed in much smaller quantities than the rest of the set. Checklist #334 has two variations--one showing the final late additions to the WHA and the other only noting their inclusion w/o their names listed. My set runs a solid Ex/MT with most NM. I have included the two insert sets at the bottom of the page--Team Canada and NHL Player Crests. Finally, a scan of Bobby Orr's Topps card represents my NM Topps NHL Hockey set from the same year.

My vintage Hockey sets (dating back to 1951-52 Parkhurst through 1972-73) each have their own page with complete scans of all cards in each set.  None are for sale, but it is my hope that other collectors will enjoy the peek at my collection.

NHL Team Issue Postcard/SGA card sets
47. NHL Team Issue Postcard/SGA card sets   
This is my collection of various team issued (SGA-Stadium give away) card and postcard sets. Largely composed of teams I have enjoyed
watching over the years--particularly my childhood favorite Boston Bruins, home state Ducks (and Sharks & Kings) and the great Oilers, Canadiens, Avalanche and Penguins Dynasties. I find these tough regional sets so much more interesting than the sets produced for large scale distribution (in Canada and the USA).

1948 Bowman/Leaf NFL Football set(s)
48. 1948 Bowman/Leaf NFL Football set(s) 
The 1948 Bowman Football card set consists of 108 total cards measuring 2-1/16 by 2-1/2 inches. The product boasts key rookie cards of multiple Hall of Fame players, including Steve Van Buren (#7), Sammy Baugh (#22), Bulldog Turner (#36), Pete Pihos (#63) and Sid Luckman (#107). It was printed on three 36-card printing sheets. The cards were printed by every third number, where sheet one had cards #1, 4, 7, 10, and so on. Sheet two featured cards #2, 5, 8, 11, and sheet three has all the cards divisible by three (#3,6,9,12). The cards from the third sheet are the rarest, with the second sheet being slightly harder to complete than the first. My raw set is a solid Ex+ with a few better and a few VG.
  Included after the 1948 Bowman set is my raw 1948 Leaf Football First Series #1-49 in VG/Ex condition on average.

1950 Bowman NFL Football set
49. 1950 Bowman NFL Football set 
Bowman decided not to issue a football set in 1949 as part of an agreement that allowed Leaf to have a monopoly on the market before leaving. As a result, they took over in 1950 as the dominant company when it came to featuring stars of the gridiron.
Otto Graham, Y.A. Tittle, Lou Groza, Tony Canadeo, Elroy Crazylegs Hirsch, Joe Perry and Marion Motley are some of the big-name players showing up on their first cards in this attractive and popular set. My raw set would grade about VG with some a grade or two higher.

51. 1952 Bowman (Small) NFL Football set     
The 1952 Bowman Small set (cards are 2 1/16" by 3 1/8") is identical to the large set (2½" by 3¾") with the exception of size.  The 1952 Bowman Small Football Card set also does not have the expensive short-printed cards, contained in the Large set, making it much more affordable to complete.
The Rookie Cards from this set include #14 Paul Brown, #16 Frank Gifford, #23 Gino Marchetti, #29 Hugh McElhenny, #48 George Halas, #85 Andy Robustelli, #127 Ollie Matson and #140 Yale Lary.  My raw Small set is about VG/EX with many in the EX range. I have included my 23 1952 Large singles at the bottom of the page.  I had picked them up in a vain attempt to try a complete that set as well many years ago.

After cutting back on the size of its 1953 set, Bowman increased its 1954 set to 128 cards. The set was broken down over four 32-card printing sheets with the short-printed third sheet, containing cards 65-96, proving much tougher to locate than the rest of the set. The big rookies in the set include George Blanda and Doug Atkins. My raw set likely would grade an average of Ex+.

The 1955 Bowman Football Card Set includes 160 vintage size cards, with the high numbered cards (65-160) slightly more difficult to find. These were the last sports cards issued by the Bowman Gum Co. before being purchased by Topps, and was the largest of the eight sets produced by the company. The most valuable card is of #152 Tom Landry. Cards #161-163 are custom cards of Otto Graham and John Unitas who did not have cards in the regular set. My raw set would grade Ex/Mt on average with a few better.

1956 Topps NFL Football set
55. 1956 Topps NFL Football set 
1956 Topps Football is the company's first officially licensed NFL trading card product. This came as a result of the acquisition of their long-time competitor Bowman. This inaugural release was the start of an annual issue of Topps NFL football cards that continues today. It was printed in a single series of 120, though all the players (and team cards) from the Washington Redskins and Chicago Cardinals were short-printed, and are considered scarce as they were printed in much smaller quantities than other cards in the set. There is also an unnumbered checklist, as well as 5 contest cards that were included in packs (I have the checklist card). I also added 3 customs of Otto Graham, Bart Starr and John Unitas at the bottom of the page. My raw set would grade about Ex/Mt to Nm.

1957 Topps NFL Football set
56. 1957 Topps NFL Football set 
The 1957 Topps Football card set is incredibly popular with collectors due to the fact that it is loaded with stars and rookies of future Hall of Fame players. Of the 154 total cards, 31 of the players on the checklist have been inducted into the Professional Football Hall of Fame. Key 1957 Topps Football rookie cards are Bart Starr (#119), Johnny Unitas (#138) and Paul Hornung (#151). Other major players appearing for the first time include Dick "Night Train" Lane (#85), Tommy McDonald (#124), Raymond Berry (#94) and Earl Morrall (#104). Missing from the set are a handful of future Hall of Famers, most notably Len Dawson and Jim Brown (though I have included a custom card of Brown at the bottom of the page). Printed in two separate series, the first contains 88 cards, with the second series having 66. It is said that 22 cards in the second series were double-printed to fill out the printing page, one of those cards, number 138, is the rookie card of Johnny Unitas. Generally, high-number cards are a little harder to find than low numbers and, therefore, command a slight premium. My raw set would grade about Ex/MT or so.

59. 1959 Topps NFL Football set 
The 1959 Topps Football set was printed in two, 88-card series. In a change from the usual series format, cards from the first series are slightly more scarce and more valuable than cards from the second as the result of being printed in a smaller quantity.  The backs of the cards have a scratch-off trivia question that has part of the answer image visible. Card backs that have had been subjected to the edge of a coin are, obviously, less valuable than those that haven't. My raw set would grade at least Ex/Mt on average.

1960 Topps NFL Football set
60. 1960 Topps NFL Football set 
The 1960 Topps Football card set has no scarce cards as all were printed in equal amounts. Also, the card stock holds up well, making it easier to build a set in EX or better.
It was issued as a single series despite the checklists calling them the first and second series. The only rookie card of note is that of Forrest Gregg (#56). However, what the set lacks in rookie cards it makes up for in star appeal with hobby heavyweights like Jim Brown (#23), Bart Starr (#51) and Johnny Unitas (#1) anchoring the set. Other future Hall of Fame players in the set include Paul Hornung (#54), Frank Gifford (#74), Bobby Layne (#93) and Y.A. Tittle (#113). The set also has the distinction of being the first to showcase cards of the Dallas Cowboys. My raw set grades about Ex+, with many in Ex/Mt or better.

1961 Topps NFL/AFL Football set
61. 1961 Topps NFL/AFL Football set 
1961 Topps Football was released in two series. NFL teams comprised card numbers 1-132, while AFL players were printed in the second series with card numbers 133-197. The AFL players are slightly more difficult to find and star players do command a slight premium, particularly card #166, belonging to Jack Kemp.The set also contains key rookies of Don Maynard (#150), Jim Otto (#182), Tom Flores (#186), John Brodie (#59) and Henry Jordan (#45). Other rookies include Boyd Dowler (#43), Johnny Robinson (#139), Art Powell (#151) and Lionel Taylor (#190). Common condition issues impacting the 1961 Topps Football card set include chipping on the blue-border on the back of the cards, as well as bleed-through to the fronts of cards stored next to them in stacks/boxes. My raw set would grade Ex/MT on average with a few better.

1961-1964 Kahn's Weiners FB card sets
62. 1961-1964 Kahn's Weiners FB card sets 
This gallery contains scans of my Kahn's Weiners Football sets.  I obtained the 1961-1964 sets from Larry Fritsch in 1980 for $400-500 per set. Larry had put together uncirculated sets with cards that were not pulled from the Kahn's meat packaging (and, therefore, did not have the stains and creases found on many vintage Kahn's issues). As the company was based in the mid-west, the Browns and Steelers  are heavily represented- particularly in the earlier sets. Though I do not have the first two sets that Kahn's issued in 1959 and 1960, I was able to find the Jim Brown from 1959 and Willie Davis from 1960 to serve as "type" cards for each.

1961 Lake to Lake Packers cards were distributed with products from Wisconsin's Lake to Lake Dairy. There are 36 cards in the set: 16 that are plentiful, and 20 short prints that are difficult to find. Estimates are the the common cards outnumber the difficult ones about 10 to 1. The Lake to Lake set includes several pre-rookie cards of Hall of Fame players, including Ray Nitschke. My set grades about EX/MT and was acquired in 1980 from long-time collector John Spalding who had given up on finding two missing cards (#1,36), which i was able to locate much later. Amazingly, 12 of the 36 players featured in the set are now members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame!

1962 Topps NFL Football set
64. 1962 Topps NFL Football set 
After one year of featuring players from both the NFL and the upstart AFL, Topps returned to the practice of featuring only NFL players. The key rookies in the set are Ernie Davis (#36), Fran Tarkenton (#90) and Mike Ditka (#17). Other rookies include, Roman Gabriel (#88), Alex Hawkins (#3), Don Perkins (#41), Fuzzy Thurston (#69), Tommy Mason (#94), Billy Kilmer (#151) and Norm Snead (#164). A number of the cards were short-printed throughout the set. It is estimated that between 70 and 88 cards in total are short-prints. As a result, assembling the set, in any condition, can be a challenge. Some of the bigger names falling into the short-printed category are Hall of Famers, Raymond Berry (#5), Bart Starr (#63), Paul Hornung (#64). The black borders of the 1962 Topps Football cards are susceptible to chipping and centering is also a common problem with the set. My raw set is in a solid Ex/Mt or better.

1962 Post Cereal NFL Football set
65. 1962 Post Cereal NFL Football set 
I obtained this set from Larry Fritsch in 1980 (minus 5 cards) as this was a second high grade set he had personally assembled at the same time as his own set. I believe i paid about $400 or so for it (the guide had it for $125 at the time)--but I knew I would never again find such a beautiful (near) set of this classic food issue. In case you are wondering, it was lacking 2 SP's out of the 5 missing cards--#139 and 193. Notable rookies in the set include Fran Tarkenton and Mike Ditka. Bob Lilly,Gene Hickerson, Larry Wilson and Jim Johnson have cards that pre-date their first Topps or Philadelphia cards. The 40-some short printed cards are extremely challenging in any grade, and a few tough ones (#74,93 and 110)can bring very large sums. I have included my 1960 Post Cereal NFL large cards at the bottom of the page.

1960 Fleer AFL Football set
71. 1960 Fleer AFL Football set 
1960 was the first year of the American Football League, and the Fleer Gum Company jumped into the business of making football cards the same year. Thus began a four-year run of featuring AFL players on Fleer cards. One of the problems collectors find with the 1960 Fleer set is the fact that so many cards are found off-centered.
The key card in the set is Jack Kemp's rookie card. Other important first-timers include Ron Mix, Billy Cannon, Paul Maguire and coaches Sid Gillman and Hank Stram. My raw set would grade Ex/MT with the usual rough cut and centering issues on many cards.

For 1962, Fleer returned to featuring only players from the AFL after a year where both leagues were included in its set. At the same time, the company cut back to a smaller set size of 88 cards and scaled back its production. The 88 cards were issued in a single series and are plagued with centering issues, which makes collecting them frustrating for condition-conscious collectors.
Key rookies include Billy Shaw, Fred Williamson, Gino Cappeletti, Ernie Ladd and Charlie Hennigan. My raw set has the afore-mentioned "centering issues" rife throughout, and can be considered about Ex+ as a result.

1964 Topps AFL Football set
75. 1964 Topps AFL Football set 
1964 Topps Football was the first in a four-year run where the company lost the rights to produce licensed NFL trading cards to their rival company, Philadelphia Gum. Undaunted, the company secured the rights to manufacture trading cards of players from the upstart AFL after Fleer stopped making sports cards following its final Football card release in 1963.   The 1964 Topps Football card set is plagued by mis-cuts and poor centering. Finding cards absent of these flaws can be a challenge and do command a premium. Additionally, 88 of the 176 card set are single printed, with the rest double printed, making set building more challenging. My raw set is a solid NM+ or better, with many having the afore-mentioned poor centering, or mis-cut. The Joe Namath pre-rookie card is custom made by Retrocards and available from their site.

Due to the brown borders, the cards show edge and corner wear very easily. As a result, cards from the set are hard to find in top condition. As always, the checklists are tougher to find unmarked, but the Funny Rings checklist (#15) can be nearly impossible to find in any condition because many kids in 1966 simply tossed it away.

Unfortunately, there are no noteworthy rookie cards in the set other than Wahoo McDaniel (#82). Despite not achieving great success on the gridiron, McDaniel did gain fame as a professional wrestler.

1969 Topps AFL/NFL Football set
80. 1969 Topps AFL/NFL Football set 
One of the most colorful sets ever produced by Topps--the full-bleed 1rst series (#1-132) especially--just "pops" (2nd series cards #133-263 added a white border and the color backgrounds are a bit "muted" compared to the initial series)! This was also the first sports set I ever collected, as I bought a 2nd Series box in late 1969 and traded with a neighbor to complete the 1rst series I had missed. It would be the last Topps Football card release before the merger of the AFL and NFL, and  interestingly, Topps seemed to favor the NFL over the younger AFL: NFL teams generally had 12 cards, while AFL teams averaged about 8 per team. My raw set would grade at least NM on the vast majority of the cards.

1980's SHOWTIME Los Angeles Lakers
82. 1980's SHOWTIME Los Angeles Lakers 
This album contains my trading cards chronicling the most entertaining basketball team of all time--the Showtime Los Angeles Lakers of the 1980's. With the arrival of Magic Johnson in the 1979-80 season to team with 6 time MVP Kareem Abdul Jabbar, the Lakers would win 5 Championships and appear in 8 finals in the next 10 years. Magic would win 3 MVP awards of his own and his artistry and unselfishness would propel the team (and the NBA) to new heights. Other key contributors were: Hall of Famers James Worthy (1988 Finals MVP) and Jamaal Wilkes along with defensive ace Michael Cooper, Norm Nixon and Byron Scott. Though Basketball is not my favorite sport (that would be Ice Hockey), no athlete ever gave me more thrills and enjoyment than Magic did.
Also included are my 1970's Topps Lakers' team sets.

83. Supplex55 Non-Sport Card Set Collection 
Here is my collection of Non-Sport Card Sets from the 1950's through this year. Most are TV/Movie Themed, with
some Comic Book Heroes and Artist card sets represented. I have included
a scan of a key card from each set, plus either a wrapper or reverse of a card from the set pictured. I have been collecting for 50 years, so check out my Football, Hockey and Wrestling Card sets pages as well on imageevent. ENJOY! None are for sale, the values assigned are for my heirs.

1966-1968 Monty Gum TV Shows Series 1-4
84. 1966-1968 Monty Gum TV Shows Series 1-4 
This gallery contains scans of the first 4 series of the extremely rare Monty Gum TV Shows (non-sport) sets from the 1960's. These sets were produced in Belgium and the Netherlands and contain gorgeous full-color photography. Complete sets are near impossible and singles can fetch over 10.00 each (and much more for cult shows like Batman and Thunderbirds). There are 5 different sets released over a five year period with the final set being a Foil set (just a small sampling is pictured at the end, as it does not scan well). Series 1 features Man From U.N.C.L.E., Batman, Flipper and Untouchables. This is the largest of the 5 sets at 69 cards and it would grade about EX+ (with some better and none worse than VG). Series 2 features The Saint, Thunderbirds, Zorro, The Fugitive, Love on a Rooftop and Mission Impossible. Series 3 features Daktari, The Monkees, Mannix, Time Tunnel, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Peyton Place, Gentle Ben, The Avengers, High Chaparral, and Zorro . Series 4 features Forsyte Saga, Big Top, Gunsmoke, High Chaparral, Huck Finn, Ironside, The Invaders, Julia, Mannix, Mission Impossible and Rawhide. Unlike the other Monty TV sets, this set is unnumbered and is listed (by me) alphabetically. Thanks to Anita Schaerlaeken and Michel Soors for help with completing my Monty sets.

1950-60s Exhibit TV Cowboys card album
86. 1950-60s Exhibit TV Cowboys card album 
It is unknown just how many cards comprise a complete 1950-60's TV Cowboys Exhibit Supply Company set. I have a pic of a checklist for the set that appeared in the Sports Collector's Digest in the 1980's that lists 76 cards, though I believe it to be incomplete as I found a few more not listed as well as a few errors. This particular set is differentiated from other Cowboy Exhibit sets by "Printed in the USA" appearing at the bottoms of the cards, rather than "Made in the USA", which appeared on earlier Exhibit Western card issues. I have noticed that some have "salutations", while most do not; whether this places them in a different Exhibit set is unknown to me.  Any information anyone can add to this issue would be appreciated---please contact me at supplex55@yahoo.com  I have included scans of my 1940's "Made in USA" John Wayne Exhibit cards at the bottom of the page.    Approx. value: $500
