1970 Topps Nolan Ryan #712 PSA Gem MT 10 - A Pop Two Stunner! Thanks to elite genetics or just pure force of will, Nolan Ryan's hundred mile per hour fastball did not abandon him as the decades rolled by. Even at the advanced age (by baseball standards) of forty-four, he was still lighting up the radar gun when he took the mound for his seventh and final no-hit masterpiece in 1991. He holds the second most untouchable pitching record in baseball after Cy Young's 511 victories, situated hundreds of strikeouts beyond his closest rival in career numbers with a total of 5,714. This eternal reign was assured by over a quarter century of blazing fastballs, rather definitively establishing Ryan as the greatest power pitcher in the game's history. Ryan's on the mound exploits are the stuff of legend to young baseball fans and nightmares for those who opposed him. No discussion about baseball's greatest pitchers can be taken seriously without the name "Ryan" being uttered.

It is with great pleasure we offer the most pristine example on record of Nolan's 1970 Topps baseball card! Graded PSA Gem MT 10, this is one of only two examples deemed worthy of this revered ranking by PSA. That assessment is from a submission pool currently over 3,100 examples. Bright, clean, centered, blemish-free, etc. the positive adjectives flow freely upon viewing a truly rare early-Ryan collectible. Beautifully made with not a quantifiable flaw allowed this condition rarity to exist. This is undeniably one of the ultimate acquisitions for the Nolan Ryan or 1970 Topps baseball specialist.
