PSA MINT 9
Roger Maris Rookie

Fall 2012 Auction
Lot Number: 645
1958 Topps # 47
Roger Maris
Graded by PSA as MINT 9

Realized Price: $8,040

This 1958 Topps card is the rookie issue of star slugger Roger Maris. Maris enjoyed a very productive 12-year career. He was named to seven All Star teams, was a three time World Series champion, was a two time American League MVP Award winner, and most famously broke the great Babe Ruth's single season home run record with 61 round trippers in 1961.

The offered card is, quite simply, a breathtaking gem. It is, by far, the finest looking Maris rookie we've ever handled. The card is so bright, and has such striking contrast between the blinding snow-white borders and brilliant fluorescent-orange background, that it almost seems to glow. Add in the sparkling glossy finish and the absolutely pristine surface, and you have a truly unique piece.
