1957 Topps Football Cards

1957 Topps football card wrapperThere are 155 cards in the 1957 Topps football card set: 154 NFL players and a checklist. According to the price guides, the set was issued in two series, cards 1-88 and cards 89-154. I am not sure that the guides are correct, however, because I have seen a partial sheet containing both low- and high-numbered cards. See my 1957 Topps virtual uncut sheet page for details.

You can see pictures of a 1957 Topps 5-cent display box on the Legendary Auctions web site. Also see my blog article, T is for Topps, Part 1: the 1950s.

Rookie cards of Pro Football Hall of Famers in the 1957 Topps set: Raymond Berry, Jack Butler, Paul Hornung, Dick Lane, Tommy McDonald, Bart Starr, John Unitas. Rookie cards of Heisman Trophy winners in the 1957 Topps set: Howard Cassady, Paul Hornung.
