Two years before Kellogg’s began it’s run of popular 3-D baseball cards, Topps “threw its hat into the ring” by experimenting with a similar 3-D test issue that included 12 subjects. A thick “ribbed” plastic coating was laminated over a sharp player image and fuzzy stadium background. This combination provided the illusion of depth perception as the card was moved or tilted. Due to extremely limited distribution, these cards are ultra scarce and demand a significant premium in today’s market. Presented here is the Dodger’s star outfielder, Ron Fairly in a spectacular PSA 8 holder. All attributes of this example comply with the “NM-MT” technical assessment including image contrast, centering, edging, print registration, etc. Only a few diminutive surface imperfections on the front side prevent this card from achieving either “mint” or “gem mint” status. Certainly one of the rarest post WWII cards that would augment any vintage collection!
