1955 Topps Doubleheaders Needs List


The 1955 Topps Doubleheaders set is an easy one to overlook. As one of Topps first non-flagship experiments it is largely overshadowed by the main set. The set population is very small and frankly there aren't a lot of examples to collect. It just isn't a set you often stumble upon at a card show or garage sale.


The very nature of the cards -- collectors get two card in one by folding over the top part of the card -- which if you did that five or 10 times, your card is basically destroyed. Pristine examples of the most valuable cards in the set (including Ted Williams, Jackie Robinson and Hank Aaron) are worth many thousands and so I have no delusions about tracking down those cards. But I enjoy the tall illustrated cards and so this list is just to keep a record of what I've been able to find so far.

The creativity behind this set is mind-blowing. I'd love to see Topps do a remake of this set for Archives one day.
