Topps World on Wheels: Alfa Romeo

The latest from our series featuring cards from the 1953—1955 Topps issued bubblegum cards, “World on Wheels”.

From the card’s reverse: Alfa Romeo

This famous-make Italian racing car has seen action in almost all the major automobile races in Europe. In one race in Switzerland, an Alfa-Romeo, driven by Nino Faurino, hit a wrecked car… causing his car to run into the crowd, injuring both his legs. The Alfa-Romeo company is considered the greatest builder of Grand Prix racing cars in the world. They make sports cars as well.
