The fronts are a textured paper with gilt print with a white border framing the institutions' seal, a pennant with the schools name, and sometimes a person-always a guy- playing a sport-is horse riding a sport? For #s 1-25 the front indicates "College Series 1 to 25, 2nd Edition" Not sure what the first edition is? The successive series indicate "College Series X to X".
The backs are pretty straight forward-an alphabetical listing of the cards in the particular series. Some have a stamp indicating the number of the employee who packed the box. Which I think is pretty cool. The key is to make sure the stamp doesn't affect the printing.
The T51 cards are very reasonably priced-with excellent copies going for about $5-for some schools, Michigan? Can go for much more. I picked up three-and will pick up others here are there-spending a max of $6 per and in no big hurry. If you aren't picky I have seen lower grade copies going for a few dollars.
Which ones did I pick up?
