Al,

Yes, I have the pinup sticker. I also have pin up proofs. The sticker is different in that it is printed on sticker stock similar to the 68 pirate and red sox stickers and 1968 Action all star stickers. Likely an unissued test.

Dave,
As far as I know, no difference in the size of the cards, but the boxes are different - most strikingly from 1960-1962 where there are different color combinations. The photos I am attaching only include part of the box - enough to see some of the differences. Also interesting at least as far as Clemente goes - the 25 piece boxes are much tougher from 1963-1967, but in 1962 his 25 piece box is the "easy" one.

Thanks Howard-I've always been amazed there was a 20 and 25 count each year, it seems like such a small difference!

I am thinking more and more that Clemente poster sticker was from an in-house Topps mockup for a management pitch and it would not surprise me one bit if it was for what became Action All Star Stickers.

Default quite possible or

I was thinking it was also possible that it was a precursor to the 1967 Pirate/ red sox sticker issue. Mock up as opposed to test seems right as I have not seen nor heard of another one existing. I have also asked some of the most advanced collectors and dealers who too have not seen another. In any case a true and coveted gem in my collection - comes with a great back story too - A guy I befriended through a shared love of Clemente who I got to know when I did shows in Pittsburgh found it for me!

Larry enlightened me about the different size Bazooka boxes. The information has kept the collecting candle flickering for me as I have almost every other known Clemente item that I want. Highly interesting to me is I have owned or own both size Clemente Bazooka boxes from 1962, 1963 and 1967 - '63 and '67 being incredibly tough boxes in any size, yet I have never seen a 25 piece box for 1964, 1965 or 1966 - '65 and '66 being 2 of the "easiest" (of the 20 piece variation) to find. As far as I know there was only 1 size in 1968 and 1971.

Dave, do you own any complete 1960 boxes?

-Howard

Best looking sample cards ever, IMO:

Default 1960 Topps Baseball Salesman Sample

I posted a few days back, asking if anyone has ever seen this particular Salesman Sample from 1960, which I own? I was unable to upload a photo at the time, but now I can, so here it is:

Howard-I don't have any intact boxes and only a couple of panels are in my type run right now. I am just now getting serious about Bazooka items, I really like how the intact panels look.

Adam-agree 100% with your assessment!

Just reread this thread and thought it should be back on top for another glimpse from those interested.

Default 1954 Topps Ted Williams Advertising piece

Hi Gang:

Thought I would revive this thread.

I had this 1954 Topps ad piece back in the early 70's. It went to Barry Halper when I sold him my collection. I had not seen one before or since, but recently was able to pick up this one.

It is similar to the 1957, 1960 and 1962 adverting panels shown earlier in this thread, which are not salesman samples but seems to have been intended to put in the windows of stores announcing that the new set is now available.

Like those this is blank backed. 7" x 11"

1954 was the year Topps wrangled Ted away from Bowman and used him to start and end the set as well as use him on the boxes, and this ad piece as well.

Anyone else have one of these? The one Halper got from me must be in someone's collection.

Fred, I've seen a scan of one like that before - likely the one Halper had - but that is a majorly cool item! I'd make it out to be a point of sale piece as you note. Very, very nice!

Thanks Al, Howard and Dave.

Yeah, I love these oddball pieces. Especially when i had not seen one in the last 46 years!

It will most likely end up in a major auction unless I trade it in the meantime.

Nice piece Fred, and thanks for the pm.
I think I've seen that one before, but probably either Halper or Mastro/McPherson catalogs. Certainly hasn't come up in the last decade or two.
