Presented is an extremely substantial collection of 1959 Topps cards consisting of approximately 2,143 cards, highlighted by more than seventy Hall of Famers, including Roberto Clemente, Frank Robinson, and Ernie Banks. This is a very consistent and presentable collection that grades 20% Ex to Ex-Mt (including some Nr/Mt), 49% Vg to Vg-Ex, and 31% lower. Keys: #20 Snider (Vg+), 338 Anderson (Vg), 350 Banks (Gd+), seven 430 Ford (Vg-Ex, five Vg and Gd+), ten 435 F. Robinson (Ex, Vg-Ex, four Vg, two Gd and two Fr), three 439 B. Robinson (Vg-Ex, Vg and Fr), eight 450 Mathews (five Vg, two Gd and Pr-Fr), eight 455 Doby (two Ex, two Vg-Ex, three Vg and Gd), 461 Mantle Homer (pinhole, otherwise Gd), four 463 Kaline Becomes Champ (all with pencil marks on reverse, otherwise Ex, Vg-Ex, Vg and Fr), five 467 Aaron Clubs Homer (three Vg, Gd and Fr), two 468 Snider’s Play (10/90 T/B, otherwise Ex and Fr), ten 469 Hustler Banks (two Ex, two Vg-Ex, Vg, three Gd and two Fr), two 470 Musial Hit (Vg and Fr), eight 478 Clemente (Ex, five Vg and two Gd), and three 550 Campanella (Gd, Fr and miscut, otherwise Vg).This is an outstanding collection, with several notable highlights, that would provide a tremendous foundation for the assembly of several mid-grade complete sets with hundreds of cards left over to trade! Total: approximately 2,143 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000+.
