1954 topps Checklist

By 1954, Bowman was starting to make some serious inroads against Topps. Topps produced another beautiful set, but 1954 saw a Topps set with no Roy Campanella card, and even more of a Mantle card. Both players signed exclusive contracts with Bowman. However, you will find rookie cards of Hall of Famers such as Hank Aaron, Al Kaline and Ernie Banks in the '54 set. Although Topps lost Mantle and Campy, they were able sign Ted Williams away from Bowman to lessen the damage. Ted Williams actually appears twice in the set, on the first card and the last cards. There are 250 cards in the set, and there were several design changes. The team logo and player name were moved to the top of the card, there was a second black and white action image of the player on the card and there are no top borders on the cards.

The 1954 Topps set is the third consecutive set from Topps to make PSA's list of the top 30 complete sets, and the following card made PSA's "The Top 250 Sportscards in the Hobby":

  • #128 Hank Aaron (#16 overall)
  • #1 and #250 Ted Williams
  • #94 Ernie Banks
  • #201 Al Kaline

The 1954 Topps set was another masterpiece from Topps and was a key part of forcing their rival Bowman out of the market.
