Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Of the 1,841 examples graded by PSA to date, only two examples of this classic card have ever been graded higher! Extremely desirable ultra-high-grade rookie card of "Pistol" Pete Maravich from the very popular and condition-sensitive 1970-1971 Topps "Tall Boys" basketball series. The card is bright and crisp, with vibrant colors, a flawless surface, four razor-sharp corners, perfect registration, and centered just a hint to the right. The reverse is also perfectly clean, and centered toward the bottom left (when held horizontally as intended). This card is a pack-fresh gem! Hall of Famer "Pistol" Pete Maravich started his basketball career as a 6'5'' guard from LSU, where he set the record as the greatest scorer in college basketball history. He then went on to join the professional ranks, playing in ten NBA seasons and four NBA All-Star Games. Maravich will forever be remembered for his dazzling style of play and as one of basketball's greatest legends. This is an exceptional high-grade example of Pete Maravich's rookie card, which is the key card from the set, and one of the all-time classic basketball cards. Reserve $2,000. Estimate (open).
