Topps - (R714-26) Hocus Focus


1955
(R714-26) Hocus Focus
Topps
USA
126 cards (1 football)

This set is similar to the 1949 Magic Photos collection. Two different sizes of card - 96 large cards and 126 smaller cards. The main card numbers in both the larger and smaller sets are the same, though the subset numbers differ. It has been suggested that one version was released in 1955 and the other was released in 1956, but recent research seems to suggest that both versions were issued in 1955. I don't have a scan of the only football (soccer) card in this collection. Check out this article on the Topps Archive.
