Presented is a near-complete set of 1959 Topps consisting of 516 different cards (out of 572).

This is a very attractive, yet relatively affordable, near-complete set of 1959 Topps, which would serve as an outstanding foundation for the completion of one of the most popular and classic of all 1950s baseball-card sets. Total: 516 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $711
