1956 Topps lot of 21 cards - nice EX group - stars, HOF

Very nice group of 21 cards from the classic 1956 Topps baseball set -- perhaps the best set Topps ever made. As a group, the cards are very clean and tidy, with good color and gloss, and very little wear. I'd say the average grade is in the EX range, with a few better and a few worse. All the cards are scanned so that you can make your own assessment. Highlights include Hall of Famer George Kell, Yankees legend Hank Bauer, the Tigers team card featuring Al Kaline, and Dodgers ace Carl Erskine. All the cards in the lot are listed below -- a great group to begin a 1956 Topps set or to help finish that set you're already working on.

35 - Al Rosen, Cleveland Indians (white back) - SHARP!

195 - George Kell, HOF, Chicago White Sox

177 - Hank Bauer, New York Yankees

233 - Carl Erskine, Brooklyn Dodgers
