About this set: My 1959 Topps baseball set is my first love in baseball cards. This was the first set of cards I collected as a nine year old. When I opened my first pack in 1959, it had a cherry red Mickey Mantle staring up at me. Too bad I did not take good care of that one. I am adding quality scans of cards as time permits. I am also adding comments. I think adding scans enhances the enjoyment of our sets on the registry. Many of the tough cards you see in my set were raw cards that I have had for years before I took the plunge and had them graded. I welcome email contact from other collectors with similar interests.

Don, I look at your 59 set often. Nice to see you are moving up in the rankings. I will keep an eye out for your 8's as you add more 9's
Posted @ 11/24/2014 8:59 AM By jybeam
Don. it is a real pleasure to correspond with you , because you are a "true collector." What I mean by that is that you collect your cards, because of the enjoyment and memory when you were a child. I wish more collectors were like you and me.
Posted @ 5/7/2013 10:03 PM By GARYJUNGRICHT
Don, great job on your set. Yours is one of the gold standards that I can only hope to strive to achieve. Congrats again on the Koufax. Sweet!
