Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Incredible ultra-high grade example of Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski's rookie card, one of the key cards to the popular 1960 Topps set. This is a pack-fresh gem with superb centering, four sharp corners, a flawless image (no distracting snow, which is common with this card), and a perfectly clean reverse. To date, only a single example grades higher out of 5,649 cards evaluated by PSA! The Yaz rookie almost always has serious flaws, especially with reference to centering and print marks, which keep even pack-fresh examples from grading MINT. This card is a gem, and in fact is only the second PSA MINT 9 example of this important rookie card we have ever offered! A tremendous addition to any world-class 1960 Topps set or Hall of Fame rookie-card collection. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000++.
