Default 1956 Topps football

Started getting a few of these cards here and there just because they looked cool. Since then I gathered a little over half of the set including the rare checklist card. Lt me know what you guys think! Thanks for taking a look!

Great pickups. I have picked up about half the set, but I haven't organized them. I know I have lots and lots of duplicates/triplets. I hope to one day focus on it and upgrade to PSA7 or higher for each card.

They look nice. I love the Tittle! You have quite a few of the Cardinals, which I believe are short prints. The Roosevelt Brown is my favorite card in the set.

37jetson- thanks man!

Ramrage- thanks and maybe 1 or 2

Full metal- that's sweet! Good luck with your set! They can be pretty hard to find in good shape, can't wait to see your set finished.

Geor952- thanks a lot! Yeah I the cardinals are short prints. And the brown is one of my favorites too!

ToppsCollector1- thanks! And yes. By b-day is at the end of November so I hope to pick up some of the harder ones to get then get the rest of the commons.

awesome stuff! especially the checklist. its really weird how in these vintage sets a lot of times the checklists are worth more than a lot of the cards. its really tough finding em unmarked and yours looks great! I say keep working on it and finish the set!
