A blog about the cards I get awesome deals on, cards that I have available to trade, trades and our hobby in general. I collect Braves cards (all of them) and T206 White Borders.

Now these are 1965 Topps Embossed, The President's portion anyway.
Unlike the baseball set, the pictures actually resemble the person they are supposed to.
My thoughts, too. A lot better with these.
I'm familiar with the '65 Topps Embossed baseball cards but had no Idea they did this fro any other sets. Some of these look very sharp, Grover Cleveland in particular.
Topps did a set called Presidents & famous Americans in 65' too. These are part of that 44 card set.
Never seen this, pretty cool!
That's pretty neat. I feel like I'm looking at a coin, but I'm not
Don't know if I have ever seen those. I like the darker backgrounds better.
I have a couple of the Baseball '65 Embossed. I wasn't aware that they had done the Presidents & famous Americans. Nice historical edition.
More cool POTUS stuff.Good Job!👍
I wonder if McKinley and Kennedy are in black because they got assassinated...
Love this set. Amazing how much better i looks than the baseball embossed (both in the likenesses and the design). I only have one, Hoover, which it looks like you're missing. Is also interesting how the assassinated guys are black cards and the still-living (at the time) ones got white cards.
I wonder if Topps made the McKinley and Kennedy cards black, because they were assassinated.
These are nice. I wonder what the backgrounds are; I assume the black is for assassinated.
