1953 Topps Fighting Marines
The 1953 Topps Fighting Marines Set (R709-1) contains 96 cards measuring 2 1/16" x 2 15/16". Fronts are either photos of training or artwork of key events in Marine history. The cards were issued as singles and in panels of two, meaning that some of these cards will have four nubs on one side where they previously were attached. These cards are also known to be prone to stains from the gum included in packs and thus cards in better condition will have significantly more value.
