1956 Topps "U.S. Presidents" #1 Washington Takes Command - Original Card Artwork

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,185

Original 1956 Topps "U.S. Presidents" card artwork used to produce card #1 Washington Takes Command from this extremely popular set which features full-color images of all the U.S. Presidents to that point. This particular artwork features a very detailed image of Washington on horseback commanding a large group of soldiers. This is one of the most important and striking cards from this classic nonsport set. We cannot recall seeing any other original paintings from this set, but even if others are out there, certainly the #1 card would be among the most desirable of all the original artworks in the set. Measuring approximately 4 by 6 inches, the artwork is in Excellent to Mint condition with light glue residue present on the reverse from the original mechanical stat pasteup. This is an exceptional original artwork from one of the 1950s most popular nonsport sets. Reserve $200. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $1,185
