1955 Topps Rails & Sails

The 1955 Topps Rails and Sails card set consists of 200 cards measuring 2-1/4” by 3-3/4”. Each card features a colorized image of one of these modes of transportation with a small, white border. The name of the specific “rail” conveyance is printed within the bottom border while the name of each “sail” is printed upon the image. Card backs bear fetching, colorful graphics (including the card number) plus a brief informational paragraph about the vehicle on the front. Key cards in this set include Locomotive 999 (#1), Pulpwood Car (#84), Passenger Car (#89), Dining Car (#96), Steam Streamliner (#102), Refrigerator Car (#103), Old Ironsides (#114), Monster (#124), Steel Box Car (#128), Ferry Boat (#151), Submarine (#154), Oyster Boat (#155), English Hoy (#163), Tuna Clipper (#181), and USS Missouri (#190). The Topps Rails and Sails cards are known for their condition sensitivity and are thus terribly difficult to assemble in higher grades.
