Default 1952 Topps Salesman Sample Question

Hi guys. Picked up two thirds of a panel recently. Has anyone ever seen another with the O-Pee-Chee sticker over the US$ price

I have not but would not assume the sticker is original to the sample.

Not saying it isn't but what is the provenance?

I do not want to get into the story just yet, I will probably share it on the vintage hockey forum when the second part of the deal is done. What I have acquired so far is around 5000 cards, all between 1952 and 1958 with the majority being hockey and baseball from 57 and 58.

I look forward to the background story when you can tell it. I am trying to assemble one of the Topps salesman samples for each year, 52 through 67. Still a couple of years short, but have a 3 card cut panel for 52.

Anthony, Griffins, is our resident guru on Salesman Samples. But if Dave has not seen one like yours, they must be rare.

I have heard of blank backed OPC 52 samples but not printed. Topps was always consistently inconsistent though!

Anthony should know for sure but I don't think I've seen more than one intact 52 sample.
