1954 Topps Archives Complete Set
NM/MT - 8
The 1954 Topps Archives set consists of 256 cards in total. Although the cards are numbered up to 258, cards #1 and #250 - both of Ted Williams - were never issued, as Williams never gave his permission to Topps. In 1994, Upper Deck issued the #1 and #250 Williams cards and also a #259 Mickey Mantle (that was not in the original 1954 set).
The 1954 Topps Archive cards are nearly identical to the original 1954 Topps Baseball set, aside from the text on the reverse that states "Topps Baseball Archives".
This 1954 Archives set is a great way to purchase replica 1954 cards at an affordable price, as it would cost upwards of $8,000 dollars to purchase the original set in Near Mint/Mint condition.
