Presidents have a long history in the hobby. Dating back to the hobby's early days and peaking in the lead-up to the 2008 election, there has always been a place to include cards of the Commander in Chief. 1956 Topps US Presidents is one of the most popular sets ever produced dedicated solely to the men of the White House.

With a checklist of just 36 cards, 1956 Topps US Presidents is actually reasonably easy to put together given their age. The set focuses on America's first 34 Presidents (33 if you combine both of Grover Cleveland's times in office). There are three additional cards focusing on key early moments in the history of the office.

Measuring a slightly over-sized 2 1/2" by 3 1/2", cards feature beautiful color portraits of the Presidents. Each is done as a bust with plenty of details and personality. In the background, there's an illustration highlighting one of their key achievements. Backs use gray stock alongside red and blue design elements. Besides a lengthy write-up, backs also highlight where the politician fits on the Presidential timeline.

1956 Topps US Presidents is actually a reissue set that hit the market in the wake of the card maker's purchase of Bowman. Card fronts and the basic back designs are the same as 1952 Bowman US Presidents. However, the write-ups on the back are different. Topps would revisit the set again in 1972, making a few additions and tweaks to the checklist, but keeping the set largely in tact.
