    1956 Topps Baseball PSA Graded Complete Set (340) Plus Both Checklists! In the long and rewarding pastime of baseball card collecting, no era offers a better selection and a deep nostalgic mystique as does the 1950's. The Topps and Bowman issues of that more innocent time draws their popularity from not just those looking back to replace their treasured cards they had as kids but newer generations, hopelessly captivated by the masterful use of color and sharp, yet simple design. Assembling sets is a labor of love, one taken on by many, forever remembering the time that last piece of card stock was inserted into a plastic sheet. Offered is a complete set of all 340 cards and both of the scarce checklist cards (a first for Topps) comprising the 1956 Topps Baseball series. For card collectors, it was the first year since 1947 that packs bearing the "Bowman" name didn't appear on store shelves.
