Published Set: texas bandman 1959 Topps Master Set
This is my 1959 Topps set that I started collecting in 1985 when a friend gave me a 1959 Hank Aaron card that his toddler had chewed the corner off of. A few weeks later I bought a Kit Young starter set of 1959 cards and the quest was on. I completed this NM graded set in May of 2019. It was originally completed in ungraded form in 2005 and I have been gradually adding graded cards through the years. In the summer of 2018, I sent 214 of my ungraded cards into PSA to get graded. This bulk submission got me close enough that I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. This has been an undertaking of love that I was lucky enough to share with my wife, who was the one that actually purchased my Mantle card as a Christmas present and bought my Bob Gibson card in ungraded form (luckily it graded NM). It has been a wonderful journey.
