Graded MINT 9 by PSA. This is an extraordinary ultra high-grade rookie example of Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench, one of the keys to the 1968 Topps set. The 1968 Topps set is prone to many different problems, including centering issues and print quality. This card is virtually flawless in all respects. The four corners are razor-sharp. The colors are vibrant and the print quality is absolutely flawless. It is centered very slightly to the right, which is likely all that keeps it from grading GEM MINT. This card would be at home in any world-class Hall of Fame or rookie-card collection and would be a significant upgrade to any complete set. This is a spectacular ultra high-grade example of one of modern card collecting's most popular rookie cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
