It is a copy. But it was offered clearly as such. Thought it an interesting item to put with set. I often get copies of old advertisements about Topps products to put with my sets. Keep articles about sets or products with them as well

I actually don't think it's a copy, I think it is a made up piece that never was. These are popping up for Beatles cards, for Penny's, McCrory's, and other card sets. I think I saw 1956 Topps baseball too. They all look the same, just the card set is changed and sometimes the store selling is changed too. They are cool looking, but I'm sure they are not copies of anything that was ever made by Topps.

Default Things that never were

You may be right Troy. I had not seen the other stuff. There are several people who create cards that never were as mentioned earlier in this thread. When available, I get those too and put them in a section in the back of my set binders. But it is good to know if you are dealing with copies or creativity

Does anyone here know or remember back in 1969 which Inserts came with which Series?

I'm under the impression of the following:

1rst Series No Inserts
2nd Series Deckles
3rd Series Deckles
4th Series Decales
5th Series No Inserts
6th & 7th Series No Inserts

Please correct me if you know or suspect oher wise.
Thanks!

Like the posters in 1967 and the game cards in 1968
the deckle cards were introduce in 3rd series packs and run through
series 4 and 5 the decals came from the united kingdom and were
introduced later however i do remember some of the original 10 cent
pack from late 1969 having both

Fabulous Clemente Examples Scott!!

Thanks Jose, for your take on the inserts.
Do you think it possible that the Decales could have been the 5th Series, or are you positive that 5th series Topps was still going strong with the Deckles?

I also wanted to pose the question for anyone that may know.
Is it possible that the 6th & 7th series were issued together in the same packs?
Or are there distinct 7th series packs?

Also, I was under the impression that the 6th & 7th series wax, did not have any inserts.
Am I perhaps mistaken in that thought?

I do realize that Topps was doing a little mixing and matching with some of these inserts, in different parts of the country,
as I have a friend that has a 2nd Series Wax Pack with a Decale Insert, although I do believe this is a very rare case.

Nice stash Kirk,
the boxes and packs take me back to november 1969 when i did my 1st show ever at the market place in Buena Park Cal, i was known as the kid from then on
i was 19 then and all the other dealers were much older than me i remember
So Cal legends like Frank Kish, Will Davis who is believed to have opened the
very 1st card shop in So Cal and i think David Kohler Sr, at that show i sold
a lot packs, and here is a crazy true story i broke several of those six-packs
to refill my 2 wax boxes when they run low,, great pics Kirk you took me down
memory lane way back.
