Detailed description on our website.

Set your destination for this quality vintage non-sports. This handsome set is nicely matched with a meticulous eye for consistent quality, ranging as (90% EX-MT to MT, 10% lesser). Surfaces are clean and bright with desirable obverse gloss and corners are generally sharp. As the title suggests, this mid-’50s Topps series showcases trains and ships. With gorgeous obverse art images and pertinent reverse text, the popular subject matter has positioned this venerable set as a hobby classic generating consistently strong interest. Also included is an original wax pack wrapper (GD).


(119) Of these cards were previously graded mainly by PSA, with a few by SGC. It is reported by the consignor that the set assembler was dissatisfied by the results and broke the certified cards out of encapsulation. The flip labels were retained and are included. All cards in this set are housed in eight-pocket pages and corresponding labels are located in back of the related cards. Included labels are: (3) MT 9; (46) NM-MT 8; (42) NM 7; (28) EX-MT. H&S is including this information as a courtesy and does not assume responsibility for these labels matching the corresponding cards, though in general the grades seem consistent with the cards quality.
