1954 Topps Baseball Checklist

By: Tony Frye

Last Updated:

The 1954 Topps Baseball card series, which includes 250 slightly oversized cards, may have one of the most impressive rookie sets of the era with future Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Tommy Lasorda, and Al Kaline all marking their cardboard debuts in this collection.

Also worthy of note, this series includes the first cards for the Baltimore Orioles and Milwaukee Braves who had recently moved from being the St. Louis Browns and Boston Braves respectively. It’s also the last set to feature the Philadelphia Athletics as they would begin the 1955 season in Kansas City.

Our checklist is separated by team. You may scroll through the entire list or skip to your favorite team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or relevant eBay listings.
