RE: 1964 Topps Giants

I've got a raw set in 4-pocket pages in a binder. Great, great photos. Centering is tough because the narrow borders really stand out, but that's a small problem when the photo takes up so much of the card's space. I think there are 64 or 68 to a set. I have no idea what they're worth, but mine are NM+ to NM-MT, with a few (I'm sure) legit MINT. I do recall my Koufax has a black mark on one edge from a print roller. He's a SP, too. But overall, it's a wonderful set.

Pretty decent looking Elway Scott. A nice pull from a pack.

I just pulled this card from a Padded envolope:

HAHA, good question John! I don't usually collect non-Tolstoi T206 cards, but these looked so nice and won them at a very reasonable price.

Im gonna have to disagree on the Elway Rob.

Couple soft looking corners and depending on the surface quality, I think the card is more likely to fall into the 84-86 range. Its always hard to really tell from scans.

It seems to me that most 86s are actually 88s with poor centering. I think the Elway is better than an 84 and has pretty nice center. I'm gonna say it comes back as an 88
