Up for your consideration is a near complete 1959 Topps baseball set (-3) that belongs to an older gentleman who started this set as a child and completed it through purchases at card shows, flea markets, card shops during the 1980s-90s (with exception of 11 cards which were recently purchased online to nearly complete the set.) This set is a around VGEX (I do not overstate grades) with minimal creasing but some honest wear plus possibly other issues common with cards from this time (wax stains, off-centering, etc.) That said, the majority of cards are presentable. I went through this set very carefully and feel the below grade breakdown is quite accurate

Overall Set Estimate:

PFG 10% or Less
VG 20%
VGEX 35%
EX 25%
EXMT 10% or Less
