I have not done a Throwback Thursday in a while. Follow through is not my strong suite.
Here's an explosive post- downright radioactive, in fact!
This copy of the card, that I added to my collection in June, is slightly misprinted on the back. You can see the black stripe from another card at the top and part of the black stripe from this card is missing.
By the way....those boats there are actually full size battleships! The test was to determine the effects a nuclear bomb would have on battleships. (it devastated them)
It also gave it's name to the Bikini. The outfit was named after the island the test was held at. This card comes from 2011's Topps American Pie, the most recent historical subject set Topps has produced, although some of their choices were...questionable...at best. I actually pulled this card from my first retail pack. The Scoop card above is slightly smaller than standard size; in the mid 1950s a standard size hadn't been chosen yet.
