1959 Topps Baseball Complete Set
Complete with 572 cards. This is a randonly graded set, it seems, with each series slowly getting better in grade. It's almost as if someone bought the set card by card in the '59 and played some with the first 3 series and then just collected the last couple without playing with them. Overall the set roughly grades 35% NM and better, 45% Ex and Ex/Mt, and 20% lower. A lucky 13 cards are PSA graded, with Mantle (PSA 5), Maris (PSA 7), NL Hit Kings (PSA 6), Sparky Anderson (R) (PSA 5), Kaline (PSA 8), Aaron (PSA 5), Colavito (PSA 7), B. Robinson (PSA 7), Gibson (R) (PSA 6), Killebrew (PSA 7), Aaron A/S (PSA 7), Mays A/S (PSA 7) and Mantle A/S (PSA 8). These 13 cards alone SMR for $1,870.

Robinson Ex/Mt, Mathews Nm/Mt (oc), Mantle Thrill Ex/Mt, Clemente Vg/Ex, Cash (R) Ex/Mt, Corsair Trio Ex, Campy Symbol Ex/Mt, and many of the All Star cards in NM.
