1959 is my birth year. I was born on June 21st. It was Father's Day. It is the first official day of summer. It is the summer solstice making it the longest day of the year as far as daylight is concerned here in the Northern Hemisphere. Last year my wife was making all sorts of plans to celebrate my 60th birthday. None of them materialized as I ended up spending my birthday in surgery in an effort to remove recently diagnosed cancer. I am eight cards away from completing my 1959 set with the most difficult being the Bob Gibson rookie. Here are nine 1959 cards from my collection.


1959 Topps #10 Mickey Mantle
1959 Topps #50 Willie Mays
1959 Topps #150 Stan Musial



1959 Topps #163 Sandy Koufax
1959 Topps #380 Hank Aaron
1959 Topps #478 Roberto Clemente UER



1959 Topps #510 New York Yankees CL
1959 Topps #550 Roy Campanella/Symbol of Courage
1959 Topps #564 Mickey Mantle AS

Wow guys that's amazing! That's not why I posted that set. I don't think I've added any cards to it in close to a decade.
