Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Exceptional ultra-high-grade example of Hall of Famer Mike Ditka's rookie card from the 1962 Topps football set. This is one of only four examples graded at this level with none higher out of 673 cards graded by PSA to date. The 1962 Topps football set is particularly difficult to collect in high grade, as the black flush-to-the-border design of the set makes them particularly susceptible to corner and edge wear. The offered card is bright, crisp, and clean, with four sharp corners, bold colors, and outstanding centering. Clean reverse. It is rare to find any 1962 Topps football card in such high grade (less than one percent grade MINT according to the combined PSA and SGC population reports), but it is especially rare to find such a high-quality example of a key rookie card like the offered Mike Ditka, which would be worthy of any world-class 1962 Topps football set or Hall of Fame rookie-card collection. Reserve $5,000. Estimate $10,000+.
