Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. Outstanding high-grade rookie card of Boston Celtics Hall of Famer Bill Russell from the classic 1957-1958 Topps set. Russell's rookie card is universally recognized as one of the great classics of all basketball cards. Besides being Russell's most popular card, this is the key to the set. This is a particularly attractive example, with bright colors, flawless image, four strong corners, and centering slightly to the top. The reverse is perfectly clean with bold print. 1957-1958 Topps Basketball is well known for production quality issues, making high-grade examples, especially of such a key card like Russell, particularly scarce and desirable. This is a superb and particularly attractive example of one of basketball-card collecting's most iconic cards. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000+.
