1957 Topps # 1
Graded by PSA as MINT 9
Realized Price: $8,760
This #1 card from the very popular 1957 Topps set was the second to last regular issue to feature legendary Red Sox great Ted Williams.
In 1957, at the age of 39, Williams led the American League with an incredible .388 batting average (the second highest in his career for a full season). And remarkably, he led it again the following year, reestablishing his record as the oldest player ever to win a batting title.
The offered example is an amazing MINT 9 gem. It's very nicely centered with spotless creamy borders, near perfect corner quality, brilliant visual appeal, a beautiful crystal-clear image of Williams, and an immaculately well preserved surface. This card has a spectacular, remarkably original "look" to it. All in all, one of the very finest 1957 Topps Ted Williams cards in existence.
