The Topps Sell Sheet / Photo Project — 1954

1954 Topps was the first time Topps was allowed to produce cards of one of the all-time great hitters, Ted Williams. Topps reached an agreement with Ted and made him the #1 card in the set as well as making a different card of him as the last card in the set (#250). Topps promoted the legend in a sell sheet in which I have a copy of. Here it is:

I enjoy the 1954 Topps set very much. I recently bought quite a few 1954 Topps cards as I am aggressively looking to completing a lower grade set. The set isn’t impossible to complete in lower grades although for me it will take some time. The expensive cards are Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, and Al Kaline. Mickey Mantle was excluded from the set because he had a contract with Bowman, Topps’ competitor of the era.

As you know, I have a lofty goal of collecting a sell sheet or a photo from each year Topps produced Topps cards. I like what I have for the years 1951-1953. However, I think that my 1954 item can be improved upon. Do you have anything that can better this? If so, I would love to hear from you. You can drop me a line anytime at parker94ttu@gmail.com. I can also be found on Twitter at @parker94ttu. Meanwhile, the search continues as I try to find the best looking photo or sell sheet for each year. To recap, here is what I have so far before 1954:

Stay tuned as tomorrow I will show off what I have for 1955. It is an interesting piece, but it could also be improved on so I would like to call on my fellow collectors for your help! :)
