Topps 1955 All-American Football set consists of 100 cards, each measuring 2-5/8" by 3-5/8". To circumvent pro footballers' contractual conflicts with Bowman, Topps created a card set focusing on Heisman Trophy winners and Hall of Famers - some of whom had played their last down several decades ago as well as some who had recently retired. Topps utilized attractive border hues to complement each player's color-enhanced photographic image, with a black-and-white "action" photo as a backdrop and a rendering of his respective alma mater's symbol occupying one corner of every card's obverse. (A red-and-white "All American" logo, at another corner, balanced the design).

The set was printed on sheets that held 110 designs, resulting in 25 "Short-Prints" including Berwanger, Nomellini, Tom Harmon, Ace Parker, Mel Hein and all #s 93 through 100 (including #97 Don Hutson

The unremitting effects of "demand scarcity" (brought on by the issue's star power), "short printing," and general condition-sensitivity ensure that gathering "only" a hundred different cards isn't easy. (Ref: )

The cards were acquired along with thousands of other sports related cards from a single (original) owner collection. The cards in this auction are in outstanding condition with sharp corners, glossy original surfaces, no pen marks, holes, tears or folds. They look as good as the day they were printed over 60 years ago and are clearly worthy of being sent out for PSA grading.

Please judge the condition of the cards for yourself based on the images provided and bid what you feel they are worth to you. These cards are 60 years old and the images offer an accurate representation of their present condition.

The cards will be shipped in a rigid plastic holder (or heavy cardboard backing) for protection throughout the shipping process.

You will receive the exact six card lot shown in the auction if you are the successful bidder.
