1957 Topps trip cards

I found a few 57's in the boxes.

Nothing wrong with finding a HOFer (1998) in pretty decent shape. Did ya know? Doby was also the first AA to play professional basketball.

Better known for a manager, but it is nice to have a card from the playing days.Still kicking it in NJ.

The first Dominican to play in the MLB.  Still with us today.

I only wish that my 57 Mantle was in as a good as shape as these.


  1. No, I did not know that about Doby. Pretty cool.

  2. 1957 Topps is my favorite! Hope to complete it someday in a few years. I've got a beat up Mantle too.

  3. Sweet Doby. Never heard that little piece of trivia. Very cool.

  4. That Lehman card just misses the toughie middle numbers. I was so glad to find that out when I got mine.

  5. That Doby is a beauty. Gonna have to keep an eye out for that one at my next show. '57 Topps has always been one of my favorites.

    1. I guess what I like about the 57 set is that it is so different from all the rest.

  6. The switch from the art in previous years to full color photos must have been amazing when this set came out. Still looks fantastic today.

  7. Have a Kasco Pc. Managed the Bosox in the early 70's
