One of the fun things about the 56's is that the backgrounds tend to show print flaws, so if you are not a condition bug (and I'm not), you can look for clean cards that aren't necessarily sharp cornered and piece together a really appealing group for peanuts:

Going to throw consistency out the window. Figure it will be a nice multi year project for me.
That's a beautiful set and good luck pulling it together. Tracking the SP's down for a reasonable price will be the fun part.

I agree. Love the 56 set. I had over 50% of the set and decided to sell it about a year ago. Still kicking myself for that decision. I may start it again soon.

Hands down the 1951 Bowman set for me. Beautiful artwork; similar in style to the 1951 Bowman baseball set (my favorite baseball set), and really, the Bowman cards from 1950-52 are beautiful miniature works of art.

58T. Largely because Topps mirrored the front design in its 1959 Topps Baseball offering.

I would go with 57 Topps and 51 Bowman. Two great looking sets.
