One card from the 1959 Fleer Ted Williams set. This is the 39th card I have from that 80 card set. Interestingly, one of the other sellers told me that he recently sold a PSA 7 version of card 68 from the set for $1000. That is the one card that I think I may never acquire from this set. Card 68, titled "Ted Signs for 1959" was pulled out of distribution very early in production since it featured a picture of Ted Williams signing a contract next to Boston GM Bucky Harris who was under contract with rival Topps. Consequently, few made it into the wild. Even mid grade versions sell for over $400. I may just end up filling in my set with a reprint, which do seem generally available.
Additionally, I also picked up additional copies of the two Waner brothers cards from this set for my PC.
I've got a few other things brewing for future posts, including a call out to the blogging community to find me the single card I need to complete a set. I was also hoping to have a new addition to my 1963 Fleer autograph project, but the consigner I sent a card to has apparently lost it and is not responding to my requests for information. Hopefully that will resolve itself shortly.
