1951 Topps Ringside #32 Rocky Marciano Rookie - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,528
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Of the 272 examples of this key boxing card ever graded by PSA, only two have ever been graded higher (both PSA MINT 9s). This is a stunning high-grade example of one of the most famous and highly prized of all boxing cards: Hall of Famer Rocky Marciano in the 1951 Topps Ringside Boxing set. The 1951 Topps Marciano is one of the most popular and recognizable boxing cards from any era. This card is a gem! Bright and crisp, with four sharp corners, brilliant colors, and a perfectly clean reverse with bold, crisp print. The front of the card is almost perfectly centered (approximately 55/45), the reverse is centered approximately 40/60 L/R. Rocky Marciano is the only heavyweight-boxing champion in history to retire undefeated. Pack-fresh, ultra high-grade example of Marciano’s most classic and desirable card. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $1,528
