    Question about master sets

    Is there a consensus about whether
    wrong backs should be considered
    part of master sets?
    For example, I’ve seen counts of
    how many cards should be
    considered the 1959 Topps baseball
    master set; none of those included
    wrong backs. Perhaps because

    there’s no definitive list of wrong
    backs?
    Thanks for any insight.

    Greetings:
    It depends on how you view a wrong back. That would help me with a very much perspective then I can give you a better response.

    If you mean what I consider a wrong back, I mean one player represented on the front, a different one on the back. It has
    been my understanding that “wrong back” is the accepted term for that kind of printing mistake

    Greetings:
    That's 1 way of viewing wrong backs I also have been told if the back is on a different stock of cardboard from the white backs when it should been the black ones & vise~versa

    Guess I’d like to hear from serious
    master set collectors about what they
    do.
