The 1956 Topps Baseball Pin Set contains 60 players, and feature head shots of players set against a colorful background. Many of images on the pins were the same as those used for the 1956 Topps Baseball cards. These pins measure 1 1/18" in diameter, and the images of the players were printed directly on the pins (which can sometimes be referred to as buttons), which makes these pins very condition sensitive since they are very easily scratched.
The 1956 Topps Baseball Pin set contained 11 Hall of Fame players, including Willie Mays, Ted Williams, and Hank Aaron. The three most difficult pins to collect from this set are Chuck Diering, Hector Lopez, and Chuck Stobbs.
