The Finest PSA Graded
1971 Topps Tom Seaver
Summer 2011 Auction
Lot Number: 488
1971 Topps # 160
Graded by PSA as GEM MT 10
Realized Price: $20,520
Out of the 1,017 1971 Topps Tom Seaver cards submitted to PSA, this is the one and only example graded GEM MT 10.
Seaver had an outstanding year for the Mets in 1971. He won 20 games against only 10 defeats, led the league with 289 strikeouts, and had an amazing career best 1.76 ERA. Remarkably, he only finished second in the Cy Young Award voting - losing to Fergie Jenkins.
This spectacular example has the look of a card right out of the pack. The jet black borders and corners are ultra-clean and free from any chipping or notching, the surface quality is superb, Seaver's image is boldly colored, and the entire card is covered by a thick layer of gloss.
If you're trying to assemble the world's finest 1971 Topps set, or the highest quality Tom Seaver player run, this might be a once in a lifetime acquisition opportunity.
