1951 Topps Connie Mack All-Stars Baseball Cards

The 1951 Topps Connie Mack All-Stars set was one of Topps’ first sets ever printed. Topps’ first official set was the 1951 Red and Blue Back baseball cards, but around the same time, they printed an 11 card that featured players from the first few decades of the 20th century. The cards measure 2” by 5¼” but were die-cut so that the player featured on the card could be punched out to make its own display. A short biographical paragraph is printed on the back of each card.

Connie Mack was the owner of the Philadelphia A’s at the time this set was produced, but he had been involved with professional baseball since 1886 as a player, manager, owner, or some combination of those three jobs. As a manager, he was the first to win the World Series three times. He would retire from baseball three years after the set was released.

The set itself includes some of the best players from the past fifty years, including Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, and Christy Mathewson, among others.
