1955 Topps Kansas City Athletics ( A's ) Team Set

Year 1955
Manufacturer Topps
Team Athletics

VG/EX - 4

This 1955 Topps Kansas City Athletics ( A's ) Team Set contains the 1955 Topps Athletics baseball cards and makes a great gift for any Athletics fan.  This was the A's first year in Kansas City and they were warmly greeting by Kansas City fans.

In 1955, both Topps and Bowman issued baseball card sets.  Most of the players signed exclusive contracts for one company or the other, so to acquire all of a team's players that had cards in 1955, collectors must collect both Topps and Bowman Team sets.  It actually works out well, as both Topps and Bowman baseball cards were horizontally oriented in 1955, and combine well to make 1955 Master Team Sets.
Both Topps & Bowman issued baseball card sets in 1955 with horizontal orientations. While a few players had cards in both sets, most only appeared in one. For the collector to get all of the 1955 baseball cards for a particular team, he should purchase both the 1955 Topps and 1955 Bowman Team sets.
