    Description

    Elvis Presley 1956 Trading Card Set with Gum Wrapper. An almost-complete set of the 66 Elvis trading cards from 1956 (card #46, "Do You Enjoy Singing?", is missing) accompanied by a wrapper from one of the many packages the set was sold in. The Topps Gum Company became famous in the 1950s for producing novelty trading cards like this Elvis set. The color cards sold in packages of five and a stick of gum for a nickel, while individual cards sold for a penny. In 1956, it was hard to find any teenager that didn't have a few of these cards! The cards are in Very Fine to Excellent condition, and the wrapper is in Fine to Very Fine with some creasing, wear, and tearing.
