Collecting the 1909 Dockman & Sons (E92) Baseball Card Set – An "E"-xciting Early Gum Issue
An affordable Honus Wagner card from 1909? No, it’s not a joke. In fact, the E92 set includes two of them, along with many other Hall of Fame members. Take a look at this early gum issue and see why collectors are delighted with Dockmans.

Collecting the 1958 Topps Baseball Card Set – A Set About Maris, Musial, and Moving Teams
The 1958 Topps set is choked with history. Final cards of Ted Williams and Pee Wee Reese, the first version of Topps all-star cards, and the initial offering of major league baseball on the West Coast could all be found in those five-cent packs. Throw in legends, rookies, multi-player issues, and a handful of challenging variations, and you’ve got the making of a truly classic set. SMR reviews 1958 Topps Baseball in the following piece.

Collecting the 1984 Topps Baseball Card Set – From "Donnie Baseball" to Countless Cooperstowners
The 1984 Topps baseball set is one for the ages. A classic design, brilliant photography, high-grade challenges, memorable rookies, and a host of Hall of Famers. What more could collectors want? In the upcoming article, SMR takes a stroll down memory lane with Don Mattingly, Nolan Ryan, Mike Schmidt, and the rest of the ’84 Topps set.
