Set Building Sunday
Commishbob of 5 Tool Collector lists the 1959 Topps Set as his favorite. Over the years he's accumulated a stack of duplicates from the set, which I happen to be building right now. Generous Bob sent me 30 cards, all needs, to give my set build a little boost.
Billy Consolo's card mentions Ted Williams, who is omitted from the 1959 Set because of his exclusive contract with Fleer.
Some of the more notable position players in the stack include Rocky Colavito, veteran slugger Jungle Jim Rivera, sure handed fielder Chico Carrasquel, and Braves starting Shortstop Johnny Logan.
On the pitching side are Knuckleballer Fred Kipp, the 28 year old Rookie; Red Sox Ace Tom Brewer and the Phillies' innings eater Curt Simmons.
I call this group "The Stoplight Gang." Thanks so much for the set build assist, Bob! I hope to return the favor shortly.
