my 1955 topps sampler set

the 1955 topps set is the first horizontal set put out by topps, and their competitor bowman also had a fully horizontal set in 1955.  strange how things like that happen.  anyway, i put together a sampler set of the topps set.  for 1955, that means at least one card from each of the 16 teams, and at least one card featuring each of the different colored backgrounds - red, orange, yellow, green, and blue.  there were no subsets in 1955 to worry about.

so, without further ado, here is my 1955 topps sampler set
some nice dodger rookies up there - gilliam, zimmer, koufax.  now here's a look at the backs - all oriented in the same direction, which is nice.
once i pull all of the non-dodgers out of the set, i will be left with a lot of yellow.  i am five dodgers short of a complete team set, including duke snider and gil hodges, among others.  someday...

Now that is a beautiful array of cardboard.
