Default Bazooka cards vs panels

I have to think the panels are much rarer and therefore much more valuable. Unfortunately PSA does not give SMR pricing for the panels. If a bazooka Mantle single is selling or $1000 or more (which they are) what is the much rare panel worth ?? 2x ? 3X or more ??

I am personally chasing a complete bazooka 1960-71 panel set which you can see here https://www.psacard.com/PSASetRegistry/composite/14552

PSA included "panels" from 1968 which I wish they hadn't done but it is what it is. Will anyone ever have this complete graded set ??

Default Boxes boxes boxes

That PSA has "motivated" people to cut these up, bothers me sooooo much. I have been an avid collector of complete bazooka boxes for some time now. I have owned complete sets of boxes from 1963, 1966, 1967, 1968 and 1971.

A 1960 box with Clemente is the white whale on my want list currently. I am also looking for other boxes from 1959, 1960, 1961, 1962, 1964 and 1965. Have some to trade if any one has what I need.

I'm 100% on board with Mike. PSA master set requirements that you have 3 of the same card , i.e. box, panel and single are ridiculous. The option should be to have the ard in any one of those forms. I personally collect in panel form when they are available like 1960 - 71 Bazooka, 1975-79 Hostess, 1986-88 Drakes, but that should be my choice.

To me the ultimate has to what's being added to the Master sets like match book covers and those pics from the side panels of trans-o-gram boxes. THOSE ARE NOT CARDS, THE CARDS ARE ON THE BACK !

No doubt about it, Phil. The adding of some of these very questionable items as "cards" to the PSA Master Set Registry (just to gain points, and pad one's set rating) is so much of a stretch, it's way outside the range of Willie "Stretch" McCovey, and that's saying something. --- Brian Powell

Default SO much to say on this topic......

Firstly - before PSA registry started - boxes panels and singles were priced commensurately - a box was more than a panel and a panel more than a single. I agree with prior posts regarding it being more logical/reasonable to need any 1 (single ,panel or box) to fill a single slot in the registry with a scaled point total (highest of which would belong to the box) - this however is a conflict of interest for PSA - think about all the additional grading fees they get for each item that is added to a set?! Business often wins out over reason. That all said, in many cases the boxes are part of many registry sets now, but the scarcity/price of the boxes (often not graded as high as a panel or single from it might) has not been recognized by the marketplace yet (imho) - this is slowly changing. I have never and can't see myself ever cutting a box to get a panel (value propositions previously mentioned notwithstanding). I haven't, but could see myself cutting a panel to get a single of greater value (it's been cut once already). I also have and have less of an issue cutting uncut sheets (I used to feel differently about them). Everyone collects their own way I suppose. That's my 2 cents. Happy Holidays to all!
