Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Only five of the 6,933 Ozzie Smith rookie cards submitted to PSA from the 1979 Topps set have been assigned this top grade of GEM MINT. This is the ultimate high-grade example of Hall of Fame member Ozzie Smith. The 1979 Topps set is prone to many different problems, including centering issues and print quality. This card is essentially perfect in all respects. The centering is virtually perfect. All four corners are razor-sharp. The corners exhibit no wear, even under extreme magnification. The gloss is perfect and print quality is absolutely flawless. The reverse is perfectly clean and centered slightly to the right (when held horizontal). This is a spectacular ultra-high-grade example of the rookie card of one of the greatest fielders of his era. Reserve $10,000. Estimate $20,000+.
