    Description

    1933 Goudey Mel Ott #207 PSA NM-MT 8 - Only One Higher. Though Leo Durocher's famous quip, "Nice guys finish last" is most commonly attributed to a conversation regarding the universally beloved Ott's struggles as the Giants manager in the final seasons of his Big League career, few players in baseball history were as consistently successful as Mel Ott during his playing prime. Ott finished first in team rankings for home runs eighteen consecutive seasons (1928-45), the only man in baseball history to build a streak of that length in any of the Triple Crown categories. Offered is one of the finest recorded examples of his second appearance in the Goudey series on card #207. Corners are sharp, centering precise, surfaces are clean, the eye-catching red backdrop is bold and blemish-free. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of thirteen examples graded NM-MT of one of his most recognizable trading cards. Only one has ever graded higher.
