1955 topps Checklist

The 1955 Topps set brought a new style of card for Topps. The entire set was designed using horizontal cards, and they pulled off another beautiful set. The '55 cards did contain some similarities to the '54 cards, having a portrait of each player as well as a secondary full action pose of the player. The team logo is at the top of the card, while the team name, position and player name are at the bottom of the card. The set only consists of 206 cards (the smallest regular set produced by Topps), but there are several highly sought after cards from this set, as well as another rare high number series.

The 1955 Topps checklist includes rookie cards of hall of famers Sandy Koufax, Roberto Clemente and Harmon Killebrew. The high number series are numbers 161 through 210. Card numbers 175, 186, 203 and 209 were not issued due to late Bowman contract switches, bringing the total number of cards in the set to the previously mentioned number of 206. If you are curious as to which players signed with Bowman late in the production cycle, they were some pretty big names. Since 1955 would be the last year that Bowman would produce a set as an independent company, the strategy obviously did not work out for them. But here are the four missing cards that were originally slated to be in the Topps set.

  • #175 Stan Musial
  • #186 Whitey Ford
  • #203 Bob Feller
  • #209 Herb Score

The 1955 baseball cards were issued in one card packs which cost a penny, six card packs which cost a nickel and 15 card cello packs.
