    1991 Topps Archives "The Ultimate 1953 Baseball Series" Complete Set (337) With 226 Autographed Cards! Considering the popularity of the '53 Topps issue, a re-release was inevitable. In 1991, Topps reprinted the original series plus created "fantasy" cards for players who played in '53 but didn't make the original cut for a total of 337 cards. This is an extraordinary presentation that contains 226 autographed cards which is close to every player alive at the time of issue. All signatures are front signed, almost all are blue/black marker with a few other colors and only a couple are inscribed. Cards are NM to Mint. The signatures present at the "7" to "10" range. Autograph highlights include: #'s 37 Mathews (BAS Authentic), 41 Slaughter, 54 Feller (BAS Authentic), 61 Wynn, 62 Irvin, 76 Reese, 77 Mize, 78 Schoendienst, 82 Mantle (BAS Authentic), 104 Berra (BAS Authentic), 114 Rizzuto, 147 Spahn, 191 Kiner, 192, 193, 194, 196, 197, 200, 201, 204, 205, 206, 207 Ford (BAS Authentic), 244 Mays (BAS Authentic), 254 Roe, 317 Aaron (BAS Authentic) and 327 Snider (BAS Authentic).
