Hackenbush Presents "Fun With Flags"

My purchases this year have been few but more focused.  I've pretty much stuck to the collecting goals I set last fall.  This group falls under #9, 1940's-1970's Non-Sports.  They're from an 80 card set put out by Topps in 1956.  It's a bit hard for me to imagine a kid seeing these in a store back then and saying, "Mommy, Mommy I want some flag cards! Please!"  I guess it was a simpler time. As an adult in 2015 I can appreciate the nice graphics on the front and the simple but fun backs.


  1. I tell a story on my blog a lot about the work friend of my father's who gifted me and my brothers with baseball cards from the 1950s. I leave out the fact that there were also some 1950s Presidents of the U.S. cards and these Flag cards in with the baseball cards. I particularly remember that Bolivia card. We had no idea what to do with them and I have no idea what happened to them. Too bad.

  2. I don't recall ever having seen these before but they're really cool.

  3. KAY-ZOO TIM-BAW-DAY for sharing these cards! Much better than Amy & Sheldon.
