The bad news is that these vintage Topps gum cards are NOT in great condition. Creases, edge wear...fair to poor is what they are condition-wise. But color and subject-wise, these are fantastic.
The 1952 Topps Wings card set was made in a series of 200 cards. Here we have 52 of the cards with 10 of them duplicates.
The cards measure 2 5/8 by 3¾ inches. This was Topps first non-sports issue using the large vintage size format. The colorful cards feature state-of-the-art planes from several different countries. The backs feature a large card number, a block of text, some statistics about the craft presented in a fashion similar to the stats on the 1952 baseball cards and a feature called “Friend or Foe”, which displayed silhouettes of planes and played on the fact that the nation was still watching the skies for enemy aircraft. The backs also have the usual T.C.G. copyright, a 1952 date and a “Courtesy Herald Tribune, Inc.” credit line, presumably for the text.
At the time in 1952, the conflict in Korea and the Cold War had American boys fascinated with flying objects...especially fast jets.
These cards are perfect for framing in groups or just give them to a kid (boy or girl) who loves airplanes.
