Default 1958 Topps Salesman's Sample Cards Hank Aaron Tim Thompson

Good afternoon,
Wondering if anyone has ever seen these cards? If so any idea of value?
I believe they are salesman's samples.
Thanks in advance for your help!

Default I've seen them before

Not sure about those exact players, but familiar with the salesman samples and yes, they are that. They were issued and more collected in panels of 3. I don't feel educated enough about your specific cards to offer you value guidance.

The Aaron would get plenty of attention if you were to offer it, I would be shocked if it went for less than $200. Compared to the vast majority of these that were cut by kids decades ago that Aaron is very nice. ETA: I'm guessing the missing third card is a Duke Snider front?

You'll get more information in the Postwar Baseball Card section; I asked the moderator to move it there.
Yeah, you're looking at a few hundred for the two cards total.
PWCC: The Fish Stinks From the Head
PSA: Regularly Get Cheated
BGS: Can't detect trimming on modern
SGC: Closed auto authentication business
JSA: Approved same T206 Autos before SGC
Oh, what a difference a year makes.
