Description

The 1953 Topps Baseball set consists of 274 cards, each measuring 2-5/8″ by 3-3/4”. Each card bears a recognizable artistic painted portrait style depiction of the featured player, a single bottom corner caption area (red for AL and black for NL) with the player’s name and position, and team logo.

The beautifully designed sophomore set, originally intended to consist of 280 cards, is missing six numbers (253, 261, 267, 268, 271 and 275) due to its continuing legal battles with Bowman. The cards set was absent of  Ted Williams, engaged in his second tour of duty for the US Marine Corps, as well as Gil Hodges, Stan Musial, and Duke Snider, the three of whom were under exclusive contract to Bowman.

Presented is a partial set of 1953 Topps baseball cards 233/274. For the rest of the magnificent group, three of the main cards have been graded by SGC including Jackie Robinson (#1) VG 3, Mickey Mantle (#82) GD+ 2.5 and Willie Mays (#244) GD+ 2.5. The rest of the card set is of the same low-to-mid grade quality with some better some less.

Other key players in the 1953 Topps collection include Hall of Famers Roy Campanella, Bob Feller, Pee Wee Reese, Warren Spahn, and Early Wynn (with Wynn being among the few “Low Number” short prints).

Other represented heroes included Series 2 encompassing #s 86 to 165 and the likes of Yogi Berra (#104) and Phil Rizzuto (#114).  Fellow high-numbered cards #s 221 to 280 subjected to limited distribution late in the season with some short prints.

Missing cards from this set include: 54, 61, 86, 147, 162, 188, 200, 207, 221, 224, 228, 230,  231, 232, 233, 234-236, 238, 240, 242, 243, 248, 249, 251-269, 270-274, 275-277.
