1953 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1953 Topps baseball card set consists of 274 vintage size cards, which measure 2 5/8" by 3¾". The 1953 Topps baseball cards feature numerous large close-up portraits of the players. The high number series, which is more difficult to find, ranges from cards 221 to 280. Six cards numbers near the end of the set were never issued, so although the last card in the set is #280, there are only 274 cards. The weak 1953 Topps rookie card class includes: #246 Roy Face, #258 Jim Gilliam and #263 Johnny Podres.
