Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Of the 2,004 examples graded by PSA to date, only one example of this classic card has ever been graded higher! (That GEM MINT 10 example realized $501,900 at public auction in 2016.) Exceptional ultra-high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Lew Alcindor (aka Kareem Abdul Jabbar) from the classic 1969-1970 Topps set. Pack-fresh example, with bright colors, flawless image, four sharp corners, and near-perfect centering. A tiny spot of toning near the bottom edge of the reverse is mention strictly for the sake of accuracy. Jabbar is universally recognized as one of the greatest players in NBA history. Holder of numerous career records, Jabbar was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 1995. The following year he was selected as one of the NBA’s 50 Greatest Players by a panel of experts. A superb high-grade example of one of basketball-card collecting's most iconic cards. Reserve $10,000. Estimate (open).
