Soupy Sales
   Topps - 1965

Notes:  Each card shows a facsimile autograph (not an on-card signature); all blackboard 
captions shown below are preceded by "Soupy Sez." A small fraction of the print run had
 the card-back plates reversed, so each card may have an alternate number. Also produced 
was a separate set on thin paper that was intended as wallet inserts. Many thanks to Chris 
Benjamin's The Sport Americana Price Guide to the Non-Sports Cards for filling selected 
gaps!  American Card Catalog reference is R710-15. Scans are posted at the Vintage Non-
Sports Cards gallery.

Box: 24 packs of 5 sticker-cards + 1 stick gum.
Common sets (44): approx. 2.73 per box if collation were perfect.
