1983 Topps 1952 Reprint
1983 Topps 1952 Reprint is a 402-card reissue of the classic 1952 Topps set. This set was produced by Topps' Ireland facility -- the same plant where the Topps Traded sets were printed -- and was distributed exclusively as a factory set to Hobby dealers.
Each card is a faithful reprint of the original with the exception of the white cardstock and the smaller 2 1/2" X 3 1/2" standard-size. There are no "black back" varations -- only red. It is believed that only 10,000 sets were printed.
Topps could not come to terms with five players: Billy Loes (card #20), Dom DiMaggio (#22), Saul Rogovin (#159), Solly Hemus (#196) and Tommy Holmes (#289), which explains why the Reprint set is five cards short.
Factory sets only (MSRP: $35). Hobby only.
