1954 Topps Scoop trading cards highlighted the biggest moments in history ranging from presidential assassinations to earthquakes to technological advancements. Despite the wrappers for these cards branding the set as “Magic Headline Scoop” the set is often referred to with the plural “Scoops” shorthand.

The set was released in two evenly sized series and several — but not all — cards included black bars across the front which needed to be peeled or scratched off to reveal the card’s headline. The reverse of each card includes more information about the specific event portrayed on the front and is designed to resemble the front page of a newspaper.

There are four baseball specific events included in this set including a card for Babe Ruth (#41).
