1952 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1952 Topps Baseball Set has 407 cards, that measure 2 5/8" by 3¾". The 1952 Topps Baseball Card Set is the most popular sports card set ever produced and surpassed all earlier sets in size, quality and quantity - and has the most recognizable post-war card in #311 Mickey Mantle.
The 1952 Topps Set was released in six series. The 1952 Topps 1st series, cards #1 to #80, were printed with both red and black backs and can both be commonly found. The set's 3rd Series, cards #131 to #190, occasionally appear in a "gray back" variation, in addition to the standard cream colored backs. The 1952 Topps high number series, cards #311 to #407, were released late and in very small numbers.
The 1952 Topps Rookie Cards include: #175 Billy Martin, #372 Gil McDougald, #392 Hoyt Wilhelm, #406 Joe Nuxhall and #407 Eddie Mathews.
