Description

Presented is a complete 572-card 1959 Topps Baseball set, the largest Topps issued set to that time. By 1959, Topps had begun to implement specialty and multi-player cards to broaden collectors’ interest including All-Star, Highlights and the Sporting News Rookie Stars. This was the last set from the golden decade of baseball and displays the complete array of Hall of Fame talent. The cards (with grade) include: #10 Mickey Mantle (VG-EX), #40 Warren Spahn (ERR, ’31 obscured – EX), #50 Willie Mays (EX), #150 Stan Musial (EX-MT), #163 Sandy Koufax (VG o/c 10/90), #202 Roger Maris (EX), #380 Hank Aaron (VG o/c 90/10), #461 Mickey Mantle HR (EX), #478 Roberto Clemente (EX o/c 20/80), #514 Bob Gibson (G), #550 Roy Campanella (VG o/10/90), #564 Mickey Mantle AS (VG-EX). The rest of the set grades 70% EX, with centering being the major issue, some grade higher, less than 5% grade below VG. Overall presentation is a pleasing one, with star power and abundant eye appeal.
