    Card Terms

    Hey all, just have a few questions about a few terms on here people use that I dont, but would like to understand. When I buy and sell a card, I just look at everything on the back lol.

    Base card
    auto (thought meant autograph but I think im wrong....)

    and one that doesnt have to do with cards but see people type in posts alot: bump.



  2. Check out the deals at Allgood Collectibles eBay Store

    Insert- An insert is card that is not part of the "base set". It typically is numbered different than the base set. Instead of being number, say between #1-#300. It may be numbered #11 out of #13 or something like that. Perhaps someone can explain this a little bit clearler.

    #'ed- A serial numbered card. Some cards have a limited number printed, thus only so many of them exist.

    Base Card- A base card is just a regular card in a set.

    Auto- Autograph

    Bump- Just moves the thread to the top of the forum.

    Hope this helps.
