special CHICAGO BEARS wrapper redemption program.

Anniversary Chicago Bears set.

1955 Topps Baseball "The Missing Cards"
Attendees purchasing the week-long VIP pass will be treated to something very special - the 4
missing cards from 1955 Topps Baseball set. 50 years ago, Topps and Bowman were battling it
out over player contracts and at the last minute, Topps had to pull 4 cards from its 1955 set.
Now, Topps is filling those holes. The special 4-card set includes:
Card # 175 Stan Musial
Card # 186 Whitey Ford
Card # 203 Bob Feller
Card # 209 Herb Score
Each card will be in the original size of the 1955 set.
