If you're an advanced type card collector, there is no bigger prize in all the post-war era than a 1961 Topps Dice Game card. Of the 18 cards thought to comprise a complete set, thirteen different subjects have been graded by PSA (none having a population higher than two) and the other five have been graded at SGC as the one and only examples of their card and appear in this auction. So it seems logical that there might be just two cards of each player in existence; a grand total of 36 1961 Topps Dice Game cards. This newly discovered example of Jim Davenport is graded SGC 2, and like a few of the other cards, has writing on the back where the combination of rolling an 8 and throwing a slider was manually changed from an error to a single. It kinda seems like only two complete sets of these cards were made, handed off to test subjects to play the game and then revisions were made to make the games more statistically realistic, though it never got past that stage of design and somehow escaped the Topps factory. A one of a kind piece that will be among the most interesting possessions in any collection.
