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.
