Graded NM-MT 8 (OC) by PSA. Presented is an exceptionally high grade example of rare error card #433 of Phillies pitcher Pancho Herrera from the 1958 Topps set. Herrera is an extremely important card in the 1958 Topps set. Because of a printing error, this card is known to exist with and without the "a" in "Herrera." The extremely rare without the "a" printing error card has long been recognized as one of the rarest of all Topps error cards, and it lists as the most valuable card in the 1958 Topps set. Herrera without the "a" error cards are naturally rare in any grade, but due to the poor printing quality of 1958 Topps cards, it is all the more difficult to find in high grade. The offered card displays a virtually flawless image that is centered towards the bottom left (approximately 10/90 L/R and 65/35 T/B, thus earning the "OC" qualifier). The image of Herrera practically jumps off the striking, blue background. All four corners are sharp. Of no consequence, the reverse is off-center approximately 30/70 top to bottom. Pack-fresh, crisp, ultra high-grade world-class example of this true postwar rarity. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $2,938
