Every baseball card from the 1950's faithfully photographed in one book. I started really collecting in 1956, though I remember 1954 and 1955 cards. When I left home for the army in 1967, like so many young guys my age, my mom got rid of all my "junk." it's not the money (though my cards would be worth a few bucks today no doubt), it's the memories of "flipping" them, trading them, setting up up on my wall, and just idolizing the players.....by 1958 you could cover up the name on the card and I'd still be able to identify all the players. This book brings those memories back. anyone who collected cards in the 50s, and no longer has them (I have rebuilt a portion of a set or two as an adult, but let's face it, it's not the same) will appreciate this book and its sister volume Baseball Cards of the Sixties. Great job Mr. Slocum!
Wonderful Book of Topps Baseball cards from the 1950s. I only wished you could see the backside of the cards.
I now have great pictures of all the cards I always wanted, but could not afford! I am very happy with this purchase.
