1954 Dan-Dee Baseball is one of the few oddball issues to gain a mainstream hobby following. Led by an extremely popular early Mickey Mantle card, the condition-sensitive set remains a favorite with vintage collectors.

Usually when collectors think of cards and consumables, they think bubble gum and tobacco. 1954 Dan-Dee Baseball came packaged with potato chips -- oily, rough potato chips. As a result, not many cards survived in stellar condition. Instead, they're often saturated with grease, leaving lots of stains and blotching.

The set had regional distribution, believed to be primarily in parts of Ohio and Pennsylvania.

The checklist consists of 29 unnumbered cards. While Mantle is, far and away, the most popular card in the set, he is joined  by several Hall of Famers. Other key players on the 1954 Dan-Dee Baseball checklist include Duke Snider, Bob Feller and Gil Hodges. The set also has a pair of short prints, Walker Cooper and Paul Smith, that command higher prices than their names might suggest.

1954 Dan-Dee Baseball cards have a simple design. Player photos are posed portraits. Most are basic head shots with a plain background. The player's name is at the bottom of the card inside a white rectangular nameplate. Some, but not all, cards also have a facsimile signature underneath the players name. The Dan-Dee logo flanks the left side of the name. Cards measure 2 1/2" by 3 5/8", which is a little smaller than Topps cards from the same period.
