Being a Boston fan, I did 55 because I had no Mantle! Kind of shot myself in the foot collecting 52 topps thereafter

There is no Musial. That is why I would do the 1953 Bowman set for a Mantle. It has all the stars that are missing from 1954 & 1955 Topps.

Man, I hate complete sets that don't include the best players in Baseball. That's why 1956 is the best set of the 50's. Beautiful design combined with the best selection of 1950's superstars. Only set with Mantle, Jackie, and Ted. Add to that Mays, Aaron, Feller, Clemente, Campy, Yogi, and on, and on, and on. Only missing superstar is Musial.

For 50's sets the 59 Fleer is by far the best. It even says "Baseballs Greatest" on the back of every card.

You guys are right, there are some awesome sets from the 1950s. I strayed the last couple of years and spent a lot of hobby funds elsewhere and am now very regretful. I can't help but think of what I could have accomplished if I had just stayed true to what I have always liked. I am in the process of unloading some other parts of my collection and hope to use those funds to make some real progress. Thanks for your input in this thread.

No significant rookies. Major drawback IMO.

Indeed. I don't think any other set has even 4 of the 5.
