The 1957 Topps Planes of the World trading card set exhibits the iconic wings to date with gorgeous in-flight color art work.

The base set consists of 120 cards but, in all, there are 240 cards to collect as card backs alternate between red and blue printing. The back of each card includes a short history of the plane or helicopter as well as stat lines such as span, length, range, speed, weight, crew members, and engines.

Card fronts are artist portrayals of the vessels in flight, laid on a simple white border and with a yellow title card in the corner. Cards are fairly easy to track down online at a reasonable price so collectors can piece this collection together without spending a lot of money.

The packaging for this set was used as card #27 of the Topps 80th Anniversary Wrapper Art series
