Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. One of only four examples graded at this level by PSA, with just two graded higher. This amusing card from the 1967 Topps Wacky Packages die-cut series is one of the extreme rarities of the Wacky Pack set. Withdrawn from production and replaced with another card utilizing the same number "21," the 1967 "Jolly Mean Giant" of course spoofs one of the most recognized advertising icons of the 20th century: the Jolly Green Giant. This card is considered by many serious Wacky Pack collectors as one of the rarest in the set, along with the better-known rarities "Cracked Animals" and "Ratz Crackers" (all of which were pulled due to legal concerns). Wacky Packages is one of the most classic and recognized nonsport set of the era and this card is an ideal representative of the set. Aside from some very light corner wear, this high-grade example has a Nr/Mt or better appearance. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+.
