Description

    1953 Topps Baseball Near Set (246/274). NOTE: In the SGC 80 segment, there are 12 cards but #234 should have entered #243. We apologize for the error.

    Topps' visual masterpiece stands as the final major production to utilize artistic talents or photography to depict our baseball heroes.
