1957 Topps Football Cards
The 1957 Topps Football Card Set includes 154 horizontally oriented cards. Measuring 2½" by 3½", 1957 was the first year that Topps began issuing the modern-sized cards. The second series, cards numbered 88 to 154, is slightly more difficult and expensive to collect. An unnumbered checklist was also issued with this year. An unmarked checklist is very expensive and is not considered as part of the complete set.
The 1957 Topps Football Card Set is known for its great rookie crop of: #85 Dick "Night Train" Lane, #94 Raymond Berry, #104 Earl Morrall, #119 Bart Starr, #138 Johnny Unitas and #151 Paul Hornung.
