Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Only two of the 780 Suttons submitted to PSA from the 1966 Topps set to date have been assigned this top grade of GEM MINT. This statistic may put the incredible condition of this card in even better perspective: out of 93,278 1966 Topps cards graded by PSA to date, only 293 examples of all players combined have ever graded GEM MINT 10. This is the ultimate high-grade rookie example of Hall of Fame pitcher Don Sutton. The 1966 Topps set is prone to many different problems, including centering issues and print quality. This card is virtually flawless in all respects. The centering is virtually perfect. All four corners are razor-sharp. The gloss is perfect and print quality is absolutely flawless. This card would be at home in any world-class rookie-card collection and would be a significant upgrade to any PSA Registry set.
