That being said, are you sure your diagnostic test is written on a magnetic card? TI sold the 59 together with the so-called Master Library Module. Program 01 of this library module performs the diagnostic test. It is built in and needs no magnetic card reading. The accompanying card is black, just a label and non-magnetic.
TI's magnetic cards are yellow on the front with a brownish magnetic layer on the back.

There is also a Diagnostics that came with the TI-59 on a card. It's more comprehensive than the one built into the module.
