Description

The ardent fervor of the “subway” rivalry between the New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers reached a fevered pitch during the 1956 Fall Classic. Avenging their fall to the loveable bums of Brooklyn from the previous season, the Yankees rode the heels of Larsen’s perfect game to eventually win the series in seven games. Commemorating the dynamics of Gotham baseball, presented are (46) cards from the three New York teams in the 1956 Topps baseball series. Revered for its action/portrait design, the participants from this era are detailed in their antiquated splendor.
