1959 Topps Collection (812) Including Partial Set (406/572) and Three Mickey Mantles
Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $2,962.50
Collection of 812 cards from the 1959 Topps set highlighted by ninety-four Hall of Famers plus many additional stars. This collection features a total of 406 different cards (70% of a complete set), and almost all of the key cards in the set are represented, including multiples of Mickey Mantle, Sandy Koufax, and Willie Mays. This is an impressive group of cards from this popular issue. These cards were purchased by our consignor at a garage sale and quite possibly originate from the original owner who collected these from packs in the year of issue. Condition of the partial set is 10% Ex-Mt (with a few better), 54% Ex, 30% Vg-Ex, and 6% Vg (with a few lesser). The duplicates in this collection grade 78% Vg-Ex to Ex, 18% Vg, and 4% lesser. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC.
