316 Ralph Lumenti is the first of five cards in the 1959 Topps set that either have or do not have a statement on the back indicating a trade or option situation. The varieties without the statement are much more rare than those with the statement. Here is 1959 Topps 316B Ralph Lumenti – no option statement.
For the Lumenti variation, the statement reads, “Optioned to Chattanooga in March 1959.” It is located underneath the cartoon.
If you know more about this card and its varieties, please let me know! 316B is especially uncommon and expensive.
