The Topps Favorites — 1954 Edition

Once again I pick out my five favorite cards from a vintage set. This time we are looking at 1954. Again these cards are in no particular order, just five cards I really like.

1954 Topps #1 Ted Williams

The very first card in the set is one of my favorites -- Teddy Ballgame. He is the best hitter in baseball of all time. Period. I wish I was old enough to have seen him play but I've heard there was no better pure contact player than him.

1954 Topps #128 Hank Aaron

Hank Aaron. The true all-time home run hero with 755 bombs. This card is his rookie card and is a must have for those that want the best. Unfortunately, I do not own one but I'd like to some day. Or maybe I'll own his autographed baseball, right John?

1954 Topps #139 Ed & John O'Brien

This card is the first time two people have appeared on the same Topps card. The O'Brien brothers card has always been one that has stood out to me simply because they are both on the card. Not sure why, but this is one of my top five favorites for 1954.

1954 Topps #90 Willie Mays

The "Say Hey Kid" makes his return to my top five favorites list. I like this picture of him smiling and looking like he really enjoys the game. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who would not make this card one of their top five favorites for 1954 Topps.

1954 Topps #94 Ernie Banks

This is the rookie card of Mr. Cub and is definitely one of my top five favorites. Ernie Banks was always known for his outstanding athleticism and superb talent. One day I hope to own this card.

And those are my top five for 1954. This year was very difficult for me to pick. I wanted to pick Al Kaline but my childhood memories of the O'Briens card won out. What are your five favorites? I'd love to hear from you!
