Description

    1963 Topps "Astronauts" Near Set (49/55) - Very Scarce "Popsicle Space Cards" Back Variation. The fronts show themselves to be completely identical to the standard Topps "Astronaut" issue. The startling exception are the reverses, which eliminates the 3-D feature and replaces it with a version promoting "Popsicle Space Cards" plus the designation of "Joe Lowe Corp, Englewood N.J". It is extremely rare to find even singles of this back version that some feel should be under the "Topps Test" umbrella, let alone an unheard of near set of 49 cards. Highlights include: Graded - PSA MINT 9: 9 cards, #'s 12, 15, 18 (OC), 21, 23, 28, 32 John Glenn, 33 and 37; PSA NM-MT 8: 3 cards, #'s 3, 24 and 27; PSA NM 7: 2 cards, #'s 4 and 43; PSA EX 5: 2 cards, #'s 5 and 53. Grades 27% NM to NM/MT, 73% VG to EX (most present EX/MT to NM but have a light crease or wrinkle). Visually more impressive than the technical grading suggests.

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased I am regarding the sale of my hockey jersey. You were great to work with, you answered all my phone calls and e-mails in a prompt manner, and you did a great job marketing the jersey.
