The 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set, while not scarce, is extremely collectible due to its affordability and unique compilation. All 80 cards focus on one player and one player only, the legendary Ted Williams. Ted was still playing at the time this set was produced, which tells you how great Williams was. The key to the set is #68 Ted Signs for 1959. This post-war rarity was removed from production early on and, in turn, only a select amount of copies reached collectors. There are also a few interesting combo cards in the set. Williams is pictured with Jimmie Foxx, Jim Thorpe, and Babe Ruth (twice) to name a few. While you can find these cards sharp due to a find of uncirculated packs and sets, beware of "crimping" at the corners. Back creases and centering are also condition obstacles in this fun set.
