  • Reference material 1950's-1960's Topps

    Looking for good sources of reference material for 1950's and 1960's Topps Cards. Not looking for prices, but rather information regarding variations, errors, interesting tidbits of information on individual cards. Many cards have stories behind them that I enjoy learning about. The 1957 "ghost Mantle", just as one example.

    I've searched on the net for books and came up with "Baseball Cards of the Fifties: The Complete Topps Cards 1950-1959", by Frank Slocum (1994), as well as one for the 1960's. Are these books any good? What are the best sources on the net?

    I've found tidbits here and there but have yet to find a "one-stop" comprehensive place to go for information.

    Any suggestions?
