1957/1958 Topps Basketball trading cards featured 80 cards including the rookie cards for 23 Hall of Fame inductees. It was the first basketball set to be released by Topps and the first by any company to be cut to the now-standard dimensions. Released in the 12th year of the NBA, there are only eight teams represented in the set as the league would not expand to nine teams until 1961.
