Least favorite of the 50s sets. But an interesting one

If you want to be really serious about it, there's a contest card with a June 30 deadline and one with a July 8 deadline. I think the cards are the same otherwise. I recently completed this set with the felt emblem card and a June 30 contest card. So far I have resisted the temptation to pick up a July 8 card as well.

My problem is that I'm a completist! If everyone would kindly stop informing me about additional variations I might be able to finish the set.

Yeah, that one will either make you crazy or drive the completist right out of you.

Avalande 2006 - Don't worry about all the print variations. These are never listed as legitimate variations, merely print or ink variations. If I see a big dot on a card I usually throw it out , these cards were always considered damaged ( lower condition) by my customers when I was a full time dealer.

I've been collecting since the 1950's and a 1958 Topps Master Set would be considered complete "by most" at 535. Basic set is 494 + 33 color variations + 4 Team Checklists ( alpha or Numberical # 377,397,408 and 428 ) + Herrera correction/error and # 13 Hoeft (also a "orange" triangle variation by foot ) ( which are the only print variations in this set the hobby has accepted over time) + contest card + felt emblem Insert card ). That's 535. Plus a Wrapper would be nice to finish off the set !!!! Let us know if you get to this level !!! Good Luck Collecting ! The 1958 Set was my first complete set as a kid !

Note: I don't believe a stray dot here or there on a card will ever be listed in any price guide I know of. Please advise if wrong, I didn't stay at an Holiday Inn Express recently.

I've alway felt that the total was 535. You have 494 regular + 33 Yellow +
4 Team Checklist Numberical + contest card + felt elbum insert + Herrera error and card #13 Hoeft with white name and Red triangle.The card is not a print error (dot,missing color) but an example of how the card was printed during the run between the yellow and white name versions.

Keith: You are right, I forgot completely about the Hoeft card. 535 is good with me. I was just editing my post when you found my omission. Thanks

(3) The rarest Hoeft name White with a Red triangle

There are photos of all 3 versions earlier in this thread
