Graded MINT 9 by PSA. One of only three examples graded at this level by PSA, with none graded higher. Presented is an ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio from the 1952 Berk Ross set. Though he retired in 1951, Joe DiMaggio elected to not appear in the Bowman Gum cards or Topps sets issued during his final years. He did, however, allow for his inclusion in the 1952 Berk Ross set, giving this card all the greater significance as Joe D's final traditional trading card. The offered example is bright, crisp, and clean, with bold colors, four sharp corners, and outstanding centering (significant centering problems are a common problem with 1952 Berk Ross). There are two tiny print dots (blue and red) on the top border (of no consequence and mentioned for the sake of accuracy). The reverse is perfectly clean with bold black print. An extremely crisp, sharp, ultra high-grade example of this classic Berk Ross card featuring the "Yankee Clipper." Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
