The 1953 Topps baseball card set includes 274 vintage size cards, which measure 2 5/8" by 3¾". The 1953 Topps baseball cards feature numerous double prints and a few spelling errors throughout the set. The high number series, which is very difficult to find, ranges from card number 221-280. These high number cards were printed later in the year, in shorter supply, and are often times found to cost triple and/or quadruple the prices of lower number common cards.

Although the cards in this set are numbered all the way up until 280, several cards were never issued. Cards #253, 261, 267, 268, 271, and 275 do not exist. There are also five short print cards that were left out of the first run of printing. These cards include: #10 Smoky Burgess, #44 Ellis Kinder, #61 Early Wynn, #72 Fred Hutchinson, and #81 Joe Black.

Purchased separately the cards in this set have a break-up value of $19,560.20.
