My 1959 Topps Project

So....here's quite the story.  I was given, that's right, GIVEN a large amount of baseball cards by a friend.  They came in an old binder and they were all vintage 1959's.  At first glance I was like, Wow, holy cow as I quickly thumbed through the pages.  All the stars were there, MANTLE, MARIS, BERRA, MAYS, MUSIAL, SNIDER, MATHEWS, F.ROBINSON, ect, but as I flipped through the binder you could tell just by looking that many of the cards seemed to have lived a rough life.  As I pulled several from the pages of the binder, you could feel some water damage had occurred at some point.  But, this is where it gets better....most (if not all) of the stars were the one's in the best shape.  It was the commons that are in the worst shape.  So, after months of having them sit around, I've decided Let's Build It.  I picked up H. AARON, B. ROBINSON, E. BANKS and a few other mid-level stars and recently bought a handful of commons.

I'm looking for well-centered, sharp corners.  With that being said, they don't have to grade Mint or even NrMnt.  But I do want nice looking cards.


Highlights are incoming...yellows are in need of upgrades!
