Top 20 Recent Vintage Purchases - #1 1959 Topps Willie Mays

Time to finish off this countdown.  It has taken much longer than I expected due to life circumstances but I am happy to have gotten through it to share these vintage cards with you.

So, you may be thinking what can top a 1960 Topps Willie Mays?  How about this beauty:

This is the 6th Mays in the countdown and the 2nd from the 1959 set.  I gave a lot of thought to trying to break up the top 3 slot domination of Willie Mays but I just couldn't do it. I consider him the greatest player of all time and any card from the 50s or 60s is just a gem to add to my collection.  I really have to thank Sportlots auctions for making the addition of many of these great cards possible within my budget.

I hope you have enjoyed taking a look at my recent vintage pickups.
