Description

The 1956 Topps Baseball set consists of 340 cards, each measuring 2-5/8″ by 3-3/4”. The set was quite similar in design to the prior year’s entry, that full-color artwork that features each player “In Action” adjacent to his portrait – with some portraits identical to those used not only in 1955 but also 1954. The player’s name and team affiliation appear at the top left corner. The 1956 Topps also includes team cards introduced as part of a regular set, two unnumbered checklist cards as well as cards representing league presidents William Harridge and Warren Giles.

The set is packed with baseball talent from the mid-1950s, and is anchored by the likes of Ted Williams (#5), Ernie Banks (#15), Hank Aaron (#31), Roberto Clemente (#33), Sandy Koufax (#79), Willie Mays (#130), Mickey Mantle (#135), Bob Feller (#200) and Whitey Ford (#240). The set marked the return of Mantle, Feller and Ford to the Topps family, as all had been fulfilling earlier baseball card contracts.

Presented is a complete set of 1956 Topps baseball cards 340/340 with a few duplicates. The highlight of the set is that the Mickey Mantle card #135 (gray back) was encapsulated and graded by SGC PR 1. The cards are all in that same lower grade starter set grade condition with some better than others. They also have different back variations and there is a few duplicates. See photos for condition assessment.
