Ebay Pickup - 1959 Topps Mickey Mantle

One of the huge cards from the 1959 Topps set that I have been slowly collating has been removed from my wishlist.  I got this 1959 Topps Mickey Mantle off of Ebay last week for $50 and it arrived while I was out of town this weekend.  I have to say, in person, the card (even with all of its faults) is absolutely beautiful.  I have always been a fan of the bold red cards coming from the '50s (1954, 1958 and 1959).  Being able to get this Mantle so cheap has definitely made me happy.
There are a bunch of huge names in the 1959 set and Mantle, by far, is the most marquee.  There is one absolutely hust RC in the set, too, so I have my hands full in knocking stuff off of the list, but I definitely have a leg up now!
