1959 Topps Baseball Checklist

1959 Topps Baseball was a massive set of 572 baseball cards that included the rookie card of Hall of Fame players George Anderson and Bob Gibson.

The card front, mostly, used a circular image of the player over a solid-colored field. Each player’s name was presented in lowercase letters at the top of the card with their team and position in all caps on the bottom of the card.

A number of variant designs were used as subsets within the base set including the Sporting News Rookie Stars of 1959, Baseball Thrills, and ’59 All-Star Selection.

As part of the promotion, fans could send in five Bazooka wrappers and receive a 15 inch felt pennant of their favorite team. Cards were sold in $0.01 and $0.05 packs and, as always, included a stick of bubble gum.

Our checklist is separated by teams. You may scroll through the entire list or jump directly to your favorite team by selecting them from the list below. Clicking a link within the checklist will direct you to an affiliate retailer or to relevant eBay listings.
