The Joy of a Completed Vintage Team Set - 1955 Topps Giants

My post a few days back with my Otahni trade took a little of the surprise out of this post but I couldn't pass up to capture the entire 1955 Topps Giant team set in one post after securing the Mays.

The team set is pretty small with just 10 cards but it is a great looking set with the portrait picture of the player and a second full body in action photo.  I love the Giants logo of the era as well.  In addition to the Mays, the team set has HOFer Monte Irvin and card #1 Dusty Rhodes.  I am not really sure why the Giants are so under represented since they won the World Series just a year before in 1954.  By comparison the Red Sox have 21 cards in the set.  I guess I shouldn't complain, who knows if my team set would be complete today if it had double the cards.

Here is the entire team set in all its glory:


  1. Looks great! FWIW there are 17 Giants in 1955 Bowman (a few overlaps though).

  2. You dont really want those, just send them to me, JK. Congrats!

  3. Congratulations on completing the team set. All I'm missing for my 55 Pirates set is a Clemente rookie.

  4. Congratulations! That's one heck of a team set.
