This 1968 Topps first year issue of Hall-of-Fame great Nolan Ryan is one of the most desirable and highly sought after of all the post-war rookie cards.
Nolan Ryan was one of the most dominating pitchers in the history of major league baseball. During an amazing 27-year career (1966-93), he established the all-time record for strikeouts, the single season record for strikeouts, and threw a record seven no hitters (pitching his final one when he was 44 years old!). He was named to eight All Star teams, and won one World Series championship. Ryan regularly threw pitches at over 100 mph, and this incredible velocity remained intact even during the final years of his career.
Graded MINT 9 by PSA, the offered example is a pristine gem! It has outstanding corner quality, ultra-clean edges and borders, incredible crystal-clear printing quality, and absolutely brilliant original color and gloss.
