1959 Topps baseball cards There are 572 cards in this set, each measuring 2-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches.

The card fronts show the player's color photogaph in a circle against a solid-color frame, with his facsimile signature superimposed. The player's name is superimposed in red or white text above, while below to the left is the team logo, then the team name and player's position.

Card backs feature the card number prominently at the top left, with the player's name and brief biographical data in a box beside it. This is followed by sections giving a paragraph of text about the player's career, a small cartoon, and the player's game stats.

This was Topps's biggest card set yet, and it must have seemed huge at the time, seeing as no other modern set had yet numbered beyond 500, and this one was far beyond that.
