Completed 1953 Topps set earlier this year...to go with my '54-'56 sets.

Now working on the first 310 1952 Topps cards...need 16 more.

Congrats George! Great set. You should add some pics (including that one) to the '59 Goodness thread!

I completed 53 earlier this year as well. Great set. Love all the mid 50s sets.

Default 55 Bowman baseball

I'm down to 17 cards to complete the 55 Bowman Baseball set. I have finally made some progress this spring.
22-68-132[correct version]-179-225-238-242-243-246-270-278-288-297-301-
302-310-315 are the cards still needed for completion. Looking for grade 5-6 or raw equal.

I'm considering '55 Bowman for my next project. How tough is it? I'm a raw midgrade collector.

I found it to be of about the same difficulty of other sets of same time period. Not any really tough series, but some of the umpire cards are a little of a challenge.

Reminded me a bit of '62 with the wood grain borders - so if you are looking for 8+ type quality, the struggle is real. I also found centering to be a hit and miss. If you collect card by card, it is a tad of a challenge putting out big dollars for umpire high numbers. But, if you want a solid mid-grade set and centering doesn't drive you OCD, there are plenty of opportunities to buy the whole thing for 2 grand or piece it together for north of that.

I agree with a previous post about the umpires. Some of them can be difficult depending on the condition. The set has been a lot of fun so far and I am looking forward to completing it. Enjoy the hunt if you decide to go for it.
I do have some extras available.
