1956 Topps Davy Crockett (Orange Back)
Today, we see action figures of our favorite movie characters and super heroes. In the 1950s, trading cards were the equivalent. Thus when the Walt Disney film “Davy Crockett King of the Wild Frontier” premiered in 1955, Topps issued a set of trading cards soon after. The 1956 Topps Davy Crockett trading card set consisted of 80 cards that could be purchased in 1-cent each or in 5-cent wax packs that included a stick of bubble gum. When the cards were put in numerical sequence, the entire movie was in the palm of one’s hand.
