There may be no more iconic piece of baseball memorabilia than Topps 1952 baseball cards. Produced by the upstart New York company that decided to take on Bowman Gum, it was Topps’ first major card set and today, it’s among the most valuable trading card sets in existence.
Topps 1952 baseball cards were bigger than anything kids had seen before. They caused a stir, but not many wound up being saved. Topps’ distribution network wasn’t fully developed and many kids who had a choice between Bowman and Topps chose their old friends instead. The scarcity helped drive interest as adult collectors began pushing to the forefront in the 1970s.
Today, the 1952 Topps set often generates headlines for record-setting sales of high-grade Mickey Mantle cards. However, the set has multiple Hall of Famers, several interesting quirks and is still a great-looking trip down memory lane.
