1953 Topps Baseball Cards
The 1953 Topps Baseball Card Set consists of 274 vintage size cards, which measure 2 5/8" by 3¾". The 1953 Topps Baseball Cards feature numerous large close-up portraits of the players. The high number series, which is more difficult to find, ranges from cards #221 to #280. Although the last card in the set in #280, six cards numbers near the end of the set were never issued.
The rookie card class includes: #246 Roy Face, #258 Jim Gilliam and #263 Johnny Podres. One of the few Topps set containing no future Hall-of-Fame players, 1953 Topps is a very popular value for collectors.
