I cracked the Dodgers team card out of the holder to display raw with the rest of the set. I didn't see any surface wrinkles or any other reason why it didn't grade a 5. It was a really nice 4.5 and saved me some money too.

I am down to my last 5 cards now:

5 - Ted Williams
30 - Jackie Robinson
33 - Roberto Clemente
135 - Mickey Mantle
251 New York Yankees Team

Hope to finish it some time this summer. Up next will be '55 Topps. I have all the commons, but lack most of the stars. I'll post some scans soon.

The hill gets steeper the higher you go. There are some hefty cards on that short list.

The '55 set has a boat-load of rookies as I recall. The '56 is low on key rooks. Of course, you'll avoid the dreaded Mantle in '55. If I had to choose between doing one and not the other, it'd be '55. I think you'll enjoy that journey VTG.
#1 in 1959 Topps. Officially known as Assassin according to stanthemanfan 3/31/2014 and god of minor league basketball according to cammb.
