1956 Topps Round-Up Trading Cards

Product Details

User Rating:

The 1950s saw no short of frontier- and Western-themed trading card. Despite a crowded field, 1956 Topps Round-Up (also known as Western Roundup) is a standout. Focusing on the legends of some of the Western frontier's biggest names, the set is both colorful and fun. Although, one might not want to take it as full historical truth.

1956 Topps Round-Up is an 80-card set. It's divided neatly in eight sections, ten cards for each of the focal figures:

  • Wild Bill Hickock #1-10
  • Calamity Jane #11-20
  • Buffalo Bill #21-30
  • Wyatt Earp #31-40
  • Daniel Boone #41-50
  • Jesse James #51-60
  • Geronimo #61-70
  • Kit Carson #71-80

All cards have full-color illustrations. The first card in each section is a portrait. These portraits use the main key art used a few years earlier in 1952 Topps Look n See. Backgrounds are different and there are a couple of small changes on some, but the similarities are easy to spot side-by-side. The remaining nine cards for each subset are images showcasing key events.

Card backs use a mix of traditional text and comics to build the Western legends. Besides a main set number, cards come with a subset number as well to help guide collectors through the set's multiple narratives.

1956 Topps Round-Up is one of the most beloved historical sets from the era. Somewhat widely available, raw singles remain relatively affordable. That said, professionally graded copies can go for very large amounts on the secondary market.
