Arrow 1958 Topps Master Set

So I am trying to put together the complete checklist of the 534 cards
that beckett lists as the master set compared to the 494 listed as the regular set.

With the 33 yellow variations, that makes 527.
What are the other 7 cards?

Thanks for any help.
I'm doing this set.

Herrera, 4 Variation CL, contest card and felt emblem. I may consider selling one of my 4 Herrera errors.

Four of the team checklists have both checkbox and alphabetical variations. Both types seem commonly available.

The felt emblems insert and contest card are also plentiful...I don't know much about them but I believe the PSA site has a couple of articles about the set that go into some detail.

There are also a few possible variations not in the master set. There's a Billy Hoeft card with a small yellow triangle by his foot. There is also a claim of a blue background Hank Aaron but some think those are just faded.

In addition, card #145 was never issued but Bob Lemke made a custom version of it, which may or may not be obtainable now.

Thanks for the info Scott.

So the Kubek and others with the different color backgrounds don't count?

Contest card, Emblem offer and unopened 1 cent pack ( far below). The 5 cent pack from 1958..and 1956...are the hardest Topps packs to get in my experience. Griffins who posts here has one. Also a weird Grissom

\

Card 44, Washington Team card and second series checklist does list card 145 as Ed Bouche. On card 134 the Phillies team card and another checklist 2 omits card 145 which was not issued. Bouche had been suspended from baseball by then for one year. I used to wonder if any proof card of Bouche exists but none has surfaced. Bob Lemke did produce two alternate versions. Cards 135 and 142 below have related back defects ( pretty scarce). The Consolo is a recurring print defect



Burk has many a defect, Pearrson was an early dot com and Whammy has a top recurring border defect



Sisler has a lot of weird bottom right border variants and the aforementioned Hoeft can be found with red and yellow triangles near the logo as well as with YL and W letters




I like my weird Herrera Herrera more than my Herrer, which is really just another scarce recurring print defect

Emblems. These were recently reproduced in a Heritage offering so be careful in trying to purchase one of the 58s

Looks like I have a lot more to pick up!

I've noticed a lot of the Ray Moore cards have a big dot on his forehead.

Good one Scott. Fairly common recurring print defect

Wow. A guy could spend a lot of time just collecting all of the printing variations. So whats the story of the totally different background color for the Kubek and Martin, I believe?

Thanks for sharing all of those cards Al. Is this one of your favorite sets?
