The orange flock which called Memorial Stadium their nest are discovered with the offered 1955 Esskay Meats Baltimore Orioles partial set of (17/26) cards. Comprising over 65% of the checklist, the 1955 issue is noted as being the more difficult of the two-year series as only one card was issued per box, instead of the two cards that were placed on individual boxes of the 1954 product. Of the subjects present, over 65% display traces of orange bordering along one or more edges. Nearly 60% have sustained varying degrees of creasing while 24% exhibit a combination of pinholes, reverse writing or staple indentations. Neatly extracted from period hot dog boxes and presenting much nicer than when typically offered. Included are: Abrams, Coan (first offered by Huggins & Scott), Diering (pin hole), Evers, Johnson, Kennedy, Kretlow, Kuzava, Marsh, Maxwell, Miller (staple indentations), Miranda (staple indentations), Moore (reverse writing), Newsom, Smith, Triandos and Young.
