Just had a look at them, and they're really cool. And as conclusive as it gets as far as year of issue. When the promo literature from the company itself says they've changed the format of the cards for 1979 and catalog pages specifically say 1978 and 1979 and picture the product it doesn't get much better.

Thanks Phil. Would now want the color sheet for the Garvey appearance if ever one were to surface for sale!

The next big challenge is getting the price guide to reflect the scarcity of certain cards. Much like the Post/Jello cards of the 69's card scarcity is directly affected by the popularity of the product.

There is only on Junior sized wiffle box (Fidrych is on it.), three softball and 8 regulation sized.

Far more regulation sized were sold than the other two. If they were sold by more than 2:1 over softball and 8:1 for junior (both very likely) than the odd sized box cards are rarer.

Of course the sleeve cards are a whole different matter. Their popularity was very small and it is impossible to have cards without heavy creases.

The current SC lists the prices of the 1979 set as identical to their 1978 counterparts. That's completely wrong.

I have several of the individual boxes with Garvey, but have seen the large box (empty) featuring Garvey only once. It was on ebay and I lost out to someone who wanted it more. There were more players on it, Yaz may have been one of the others, I don't remember now. I am always wondering who the people are that beat me for items with Garvey on them.

Default Good wifffle ball news

finally some good news for al of you who are concerned about this. Through the work of Cosetta and Gail at PSA we have finally straightened out the wiffle fiasco. They are now grading the regular discs as 1978 and the discs printed on the boxes with thick dotted lines around them as 1979. The set composite is now fixed and sets exist for both 1978 and 1979.

In terms of individual players, they are changing the set composites one at a time as requested by users. They are also changing all the "bad" labels (there are literally several hundred discs out there labeled as 1976) as mechanicals as they are sent in. In the end player sets should only have 1978 and 1979 wiffle cards in their composites (of course only if the players were indeed in those sets) Any questions let me know....

Good news. I'm glad one of our favorite sets is finally getting some respect.
