'59 Goodness
1 Attachment(s)
Bought all these cards raw as part of my completion of the set and submitted to PSA a while back. The Clemente is hard to see, it is a 7.5. The Mantle is undergraded (of course LOL). Let's see your '59s!

Dan-- if you have not checked it out there is a very good 1959 baseball thread on CU in the PSA Forum with several 59 enthusiasts involved

some of the prettiest 6's I've seen. Anyone else remember when 6's has noticeable corner wear???

Very nice cards Tony. Gibson pink ? There are variants of the Wynn card. Nellie in his THINKER pose, Topps finally gets Musial right. Ford in what became a typical pose for them. Great shots of Kaine, Berra ( why did the Cardinals sign Garogiola over Yogi, two local kids),Maris( ultimately a Cardinal although Topps was ambivalent about it ?). Good on of Duke too. And old Bob Clemente. First Topps set I finished and one of my favorites

Thanks everyone. I've sifted through literally thousands of 59's before settling on examples like these that fit. My set consists of all 6's and 6.5's (nothing lower or higher) and eye appeal is king.

Scott thank you and I agree on the Banks. Would not look out of place in a 7 slab, as many of these wouldn't.

Hi Al. Good to hear from you my friend!! Here's more EX-MT beauties. If anyone else has some 59's to share, post away!!!

Love the 59 set! I am building both a raw set & PSA 6 set. Such a beautiful, colorful set.
