1956 Topps Hocus Focus

Encouraging you to "develop 'em yourself," the 1956 Hocus Focus set features diminutive cards of a sports and non-sports nature with the possibility of finding cards of Babe Ruth, Ted Williams and Jackie Robinson among baseball players with presidents, inventors and people of other walks of life. The featured unopened five cent pack is a rare survivor from that series, perfectly sealed with slight tears at the corners and the gum has broken into small pieces inside the pack. We've never seen another one, have you?

This 126-card multi-sport set features many notable figures from throughout history, including 18 baseball players. The "cards" needed to be wet and then exposed to sunlight, after which the image was revealed. The cards are very rare and the manner by which they were used ensures that they are typically found underexposed or otherwise in rougher condition. They are also much smaller than standard issues, measuring 1" x 1 9/16". (Description shared from PSA CardFacts)

Pictured here is an example of the 1956 Topps Hocus Focus Ted Williams card graded a PSA 6 or Excellent to Mint condition.
