1956 Topps US Presidents Checklist

1956 Topps US Presidents trading cards consist of 36 cards that feature American presidents as well as pivotal moments in the history of the United States. The card fronts borrow their imagery from a 1952 Bowman set with new write-ups on the reverse.

The images would be used again in 1972 when Topps released a 43 card set with an updated presidential roster.

Graded cards can sell for a reasonably high price but, for the most part, this set can be collected for relatively cheap — partly due to its small checklist and partly because prices are often under $50 each. In fact, the most valuable presidential cards are the American League and National League president cards released by Topps this same year.

The wrapper artwork for this set was featured on card #2 of the 2018 Topps 80th Anniversary series of on-demand trading cards.
