1959 Topps Complete Set (572) Plus 89 Variations

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,252

Presented is a very attractive and remarkably complete 1959 Topps set in that it includes not only the complete set of 572 different cards, but also includes an additional 89 variation cards, for a total of 661 cards! The set is approximately only ten cards short of being a complete master set. Condition: 33% Ex to Ex-Mt, 53% Vg-Ex, and 14% Vg (includes approximately a dozen in lesser grades). This classic set features all the stars of the era, but in many cases more than once, as so many stars appear again in special multiplayer cards or in the All-Star series in the scarce high-number series (#507-572). Also included are eighty-nine variations, five statement variations (#316, 321, 322, 336, and 362) and eighty-four white back variations (#199-286 missing only #201, 217, 219, and 275). Condition of the variations ranges from Vg to Ex, averaging Vg-Ex, with six lesser due to pinholes. The important Mickey Mantle #10 card is graded and encapsulated by SGC. Keys: #1 Frick (Vg), 10 Mantle (SGC EX+ 70), 20 Snider (Vg-Ex), 30 Fox (Ex), 40 Spahn (Ex), 50 Mays (Vg-Ex), 150 Musial (Vg), 163 Koufax (Gd/Vg), 180 Berra (Vg-Ex+), 202 Maris (Vg-Ex+), 212 Fence Busters (Ex), 317 NL Hitting Kings (Vg+), 338 S. Anderson RC (Ex), 350 Banks (Vg-Ex+), 360 Kaline (Vg-Ex), 380 Aaron (Vg), 387 Drysdale (Vg), 430 Ford (Vg), 435 F. Robinson (Ex+), 439 B. Robinson (Vg-Ex+), 450 Mathews (Vg-Ex+), 461 Mantle Homer (Vg), 464 May's Catch (Vg-Ex+), 467 Aaron Clubs Homer (Vg+), 478 Clemente (Vg-Ex+), 514 Gibson RC (Vg-Ex+), 543 Corsair Outfield Trio Clemente (Vg-Ex), 550 Campanella (Ex), 559 Banks AS (Ex+), 561 Aaron AS (presents Ex, large stain on reverse), 563 Mays AS (Vg-Ex+), 564 Mantle AS (Ex). This is an extremely attractive complete set of this popular issue, with the added bonus of having eighty-nine additional variations included. This lot could serve as an outstanding foundation for the assembly of a complete 1959 Topps master set. Total: 661 cards (complete set of 572 plus 89 variations). Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,252
