1954 Dan-Dee Potato Chips baseball cards There are 29 unnumbered cards in this set, each measuring 2-1/2 x 3-5/8 inches.

Card fronts show a colorized photo of the player against a solid color background surrounded by a white border; below the image is a text box giving the player's name and a facsimile signature, as well as the Dan-Dee logo to the left.

Card backs give the player name, basic biographical data, team, and a paragraph of text about the player's career. The product name is given along the bottom.

These cards came in bags of Dan-Dee potato chips; unfortunately in many cases the grease from the chips transferred itself to the cards, staining them. There are also centering issues in many examples.

Cards from the Indians and Pirates dominate, which might indicate that this was a regional issue targeted at those markets. Nevertheless, the Mantle card represents about 1/3 of the set's total value.
