    1959 Home Run Derby SGC Graded Complete Set (20). Today, the "Home Run Derby" is an event held before the annual All Star Game thrilling American and National League fans alike. In 1959, "Home Run Derby" referred to a very popular television program that showcased baseball's best home run sluggers in a contest of strength and skill. To promote the show, a card set featuring 20 players was produced but today these cards rank among the more scarce cards of the 1950's.
