```With Maple's help I get:

1, 10, 450, 55456, 14480700, 6878394720, 5373548250000, 6427291156586496,

which differs from your results in the 4th term. But this is still not in
the OEIS. In fact 55456 lies in only one sequence (if you don't count A
numbers) which is clearly not the right sequence.
