Completely Red: 1956 Topps

Ummm... holy crap I can't believe I've knocked this one off the set list. I don't have anything original to say about '56 Topps. We all love it. The color portraits overlaid on the color action shots. The large cartoons on the backs (which I scanned as well). The extra-big size. All friggin' sweet. Definitely in the discussion of the best Topps sets of all time. I finished this set with the Chuck Harmon via the COMC Black Friday sales. I still have a few variations to pick up, but those I consider bonuses. For now, this is at the top of my Completely Red achievements fo' sho'
