Every so often a card comes along that leaves even the high end collector “speechless’, a card with eye appeal so breathtaking, it exceeds the qualities assumed by the term “pack fresh”. Such is the case for this 1959 Topps Rookie Card masterpiece of the immortal right handed Hall of Famer Bob Gibson presented in an absolutely brilliant PSA Mint 9 holder, with only three specimens currently grading higher (only 31 graded PSA 9)! Hall of Famer Bob Gibson is certainly one of the greatest pitchers who ever lived. Included on the “All-Century” team, Gibson sparkled best in big games, evident by his incredible 7 World Series victories, three of which came in the 1967 World Series when he virtually single-handedly halted Boston’s miracle run. Miraculously as it may seem, he still owns the modern day single season E.R.A. title when he posted an unworldly 1.12 E.R.A. in 1968, paving the way for both his Cy Young and MVP awards. Synonymous with these breathtaking figures is the miraculous eye appeal associated with this “Mint 9” rookie card. Unquestionably, this card merits esteemed hobby status via its pristine qualities including image contrast/color, print registration, edging, corners, centering, and a beautiful solid pink background. With only three perfect “Gem Mint 10” examples of the 3,200+ encapsulated copies, any meticulous high-grade hobbyist would gladly welcome one of the prestigious PSA 9 MINT examples!
