By the time 1955 rolled around for Topps, the effects of their baseball card war with Bowman was in full effect. The set they produced that year would only have 206 cards, which is still the smallest set produced by them in the past 60 seasons. There were several changes and some similarities for their effort. One of the most important similarities was not to be known for many years to come. Because of the competition with Bowman, Topps again had to fill out their set with first year cards of unproven players in their first full major league season. In this case, Topps got very lucky as the key cards in this set include the rookie cards of these future Hall of Famers: Roberto Clemente, Harmon Killebrew and Sandy Koufax. Other than Clemente, Killebrew and Koufax, the set features a bounty of golden era Hall of Famers including Ted Williams (#2), Al Kaline (#4), Ernie Banks (#28), Warren Spahn (#31), Jackie Robinson (#50), Monte Irvin (#100), Eddie Mathews (#154), Phil Rizzuto (#189), Willie Mays (#194), Yogi Berra (#198) and Duke Snider (#210). In all, 15 Hall of Famers are in the set.

This lot consists of the entire set.
