The 1952 Topps Baseball release contained 407 cards which made it the largest set to date. It was released over six series which meant that the final series was so late into the year (it was actually football season) that kids weren't purchasing them and a surplus was destroyed by Topps several years later. The breakdown of each series is as follows:

Series 1 - Cards 1-80
Series 2 - Cards 81-130
Series 3 - Cards 131-190
Series 4 - Cards 191-250
Series 5 - Cards 251-310
Series 6 - Cards 311-407

Although the Mickey Mantle card included in this set is widely regarded as his rookie card, it isn't his rookie card at all. That said, it is one of the most iconic and valuable baseball cards of all time and, appearing as #311 in the collection, is among the most rare cards in this set. Andy Pafko cards are also very difficult to find in high grade quality since his placement at the top of the checklist placed the card on the top of many collector's stacks, thus, leading to a great deal of damage.

Cards were sold in $0.01 and $0.05 packages and were advertised as "giant" thanks to their 2 5/8"x3 3/4" dimensions. Our checklist includes all of the cards and is searchable by card number, player, team, or rookie status.
