Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Out of 1,575 examples graded to date by PSA, this is one of only four GEM MINT 10s listed in the PSA population report. Stellar ultra high-grade example of Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle from the 1961 Topps high-number "All-Stars" series. To get even a modern card into a PSA 10 holder is an accomplishment. A 1961 Topps in a PSA 10 holder is a card-collecting miracle! Out of an astounding 183,325 cards from the 1961 Topps set graded in the history of PSA, only 365 have ever graded GEM MINT. This card is, not surprisingly, an extraordinary example in all respects: Bright, clean, and crisp, with perfect centering, a flawless image, and four pack-fresh corners. Perfectly clean both front and back. It is very difficult to provide a meaningful estimate on a card such as this. Even SMR does not provide a value for 1961 Topps cards in GEM MINT condition. We are confident that the auction process will establish the true market value of this outstanding gem. Reserve $2,500. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $10,575
