    1963 Topps "Astronauts" High Graded Partial Set (26/55) - Each a 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". This back version is scarce leaving many to feel they should be under the "Topps Test" umbrella. Offered is a high grade 26-card partial set with eight cards earning "Pop One with None Higher" status. Includes: PSA Mint 9: 13 cards, #'s 2 (Pop One, None Higher!), 5, 9 (Pop One, None Higher!), 12 (Pop Three, None Higher!), 15, 18 (Pop One, None Higher!), 20 (Pop One, None Higher!), 23 (Pop Two, None Higher!), 27 (Pop One, None Higher!), 28, 41, 45 (Pop One, None Higher!), 47 (Pop One, None Higher!); Includes: PSA NM-MT 8: 5 cards, #'s 14, 17, 30 (Pop One, None Higher!), 33 (PD), 36 (Pop One, None Higher!); PSA NM 7: 1 card, #38; PSA EX-MT 6: 2 cards, #'s 25 and 53; PSA EX+ 5.5: 2 cards, #'s 34 and 42; PSA EX 5: 1 card, #3; PSA VG-EX+ 4.5: 2 cards, #'s 10 and 26.
