1957-58 Topps Basketball Cards
The 1957-58 Topps Basketball Card Set is comprised of 80 standard sized cards. As the only major basketball set issued between 1948 and 1968, the 1957-58 Topps cards have become a basketball classic. The 1957-58 Topps basketball card set was released in a single series, with 47 double-printed cards, and a "quadruple" print of #24 Bob Pettit, who was considered the best player in the game. There are 16 players in the set that became members of the Basketball Hall-of-Fame.
The majority of the players make their first appearance on a card and are considered rookies. The most notable of the 1957-58 Topps Rookie cards are: #1 Nat "Sweetwater" Clifton, #17 Bob Cousy, #19 Tom Heinsohn, #24 Bob Pettit and #77 Bill Russell. Russell's card is the only major star that was not a double printed and is easily the most valuable card in the issue.
