Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only four examples grade higher out of 694 cards evaluated by PSA to date! Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Boston Celtics Hall of Famer Bob Cousy from the classic 1957-1958 Topps Basketball series. This is Topps' first basketball set, and the only basketball set Topps issued during the 1950s. The set includes the rookie cards of all of the major stars of the era, and Cousy is one of the keys to the set. The offered card is crisp and clean, with near-perfect centering, strong corners, and outstanding registration. Clean reverse. 1957-1958 Topps Basketball is well known for production-quality issues, making high-grade examples, especially of such a key card like Cousy, particularly scarce and desirable. This is a superb example of Bob Cousy's rookie card from the legendary 1957-1958 Topps Basketball set and one that would be at home in any high-quality complete set, Hall of Fame, or important basketball card collection. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,500+.
