A Little Help

Something a little different today, I am going to issue a call for scans of 1955 and '56 Topps Hocus Focus cards. There is some background information here, scroll down a bit and you will see it.

I am hoping our dozens (?) of readers out there can send front and back scans (the backs are very important) and advise if the card is a '55 (7/8" wide) or a '56 (1" wide and a little taller than a '55).

Here is a photo from Lew Lipset's Fall 2008 Auction that shows a lone '55 (Schmitz) in a sea of 56's (including a larger version of Schmitz), so you can see the difference.

Wrapper scans and any offbeat information on these two sets would be great too.
