Graded MINT 9 by PSA (submitted by REA). Out of 3,675 1971 Topps Ryan cards graded to date by PSA, none has ever been graded higher! This is an extraordinary ultra high-grade 1971 Topps example of Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan that was discovered by REA in an original-owner collection assembled out of packs in 1971. The 1971 Topps set is naturally prone to many different problems, including centering issues, print quality, and especially corner and edge chipping. This card is essentially perfect in all respects. The centering is virtually perfect. All four corners are razor-sharp. The corners and edges exhibit no wear or chipping whatsoever, even under extreme magnification, which is particularly remarkable. Perfectly crisp and clean, both front and back. This is a world-class ultra high-grade example of Noaln Ryan, one of the greatest pitchers in the history of the game, from one of the most condition-sensitive sets ever produced. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
