#572 Billy Pierce '59 All Star Selection

Is there a term for the highest numbered card in a set? If so you can apply it to Billy Pierce's All Star card. It's #572 in a 572 card set. But not nearly the last one to be posted, God willing.

This is the third Pierce card that has appeared here, following his 'special' Ace Hurlers card he shared with Robin Roberts and his Baseball Thrills card.

I'm fairly certain the this July, 1960 game, the opener of a Yankee Stadium doubleheader, pitched by Pierce, was the first game I saw in person.
