2011 Leaf Legacy

I'm sure most of us have seen Leaf's new Pete Rose product I give it 2 thumbs up nice design and good inscriptions.  Wanted to make everyone aware to check the base cards for reverse negatives they fall 1-2 per case according to leaf.  Doing the math there are 17 total reverse negatives and 300 cases puts their production number at about max 17 each if 1 per case to max 34 if 2 per case so my guess is closer to 25.  And doing a little more math (o by the way that was my major in college) puts the base cards population at 293 give or take.  All assumes a relatively even distribution.  So a pretty challenging master set to put together.

Here are the numbers

New Design Updates

I have fully integrated the checklist database into the website after tweaking things around and ironing out some problems I think it is ready.  A few changes beside the new look of the blog which you can change up at the top to your liking all items without pictures do not show up in searches seemed silly to have an image site and show no images.

The best part is for me down to 1 database to maintain instead of 3 so expect more updates as I don't have to dread the update process :).  Also the Leaf Legacy items will be online soon just waiting on the finial checklist and grabbing images as they pop up going to be tough as there are a ton of cards and variations.

New Search Feature

I have finally gotten one of my goals for the website completed.  I have always wanted to create a searchable database instead of my excel spreadsheet way.  So here it is I basically imported my entire checklist that I've been doing since I've been collecting my first checklist was published in baseball card magazine in 1988 was around 400 items or so today it is 5,345.

So check it out and let me know if you'd like any features added.  For the basic rundown say you'd like to see everything from 1963 select 1963 at the top and then year and search.  Just want to see the magazines select type and magazines.  The pictures are click able to larger size and there are still some picture linking I need done mainly in the non-picture items so just need to wait on them.

1975 SSPC Variations

Another sidenote item but for us collectors with everything here is a cheap uncataloged variation I just noticed.  The SSPC set seems to have been printed twice once on cream colored paper and other on pure white there is also a cropping difference top to bottom notice the middle C on the jersey.  It's a widely available cheap set that has been rumored to have been reprinted long after 1975 think this pretty proves it.  The cream seems to be slightly easier to find but I have a small sampling to go by.

1969 MLB Photostamp

There has always been some confusion on this set and 1970 set as far as back variations.  I think I have figured it out properly and should be reflected in the big book in the future.  The 1969 set was issued twice early in 69 they released them as booklet of 48 stamps if you take the booklet apart you get 2 sheets together of 8 stamps.  Then they reissued them in the familiar sheets of 12.  The difference between the 2 is easy to tell the early ones were on a white stock and has a solid line on the back the later issue is on a duller off white stock and has a dotted line on the back.  The 1970 set was just a continuation of the 2nd 69 set issued in sheets of 12 again Rose however is not in the 70 set although most likely the original 69 set was still for sale in 70.  Var 1 is the second printing and far easier to get then Var 2 the first printing (I know var numbers should be reversed but I wasn't the first person to start with that numbering system) I'm still looking for a complete booklet or sheet of var 2 if anyone can provide a scan.
