Description

    1954 Topps Al Kaline #201 PSA NM-MT 8. Ty Cobb will hold the "Mr. Tiger" nickname for many fans in the team's pantheon. In 1953 Al Kaline debuted at age eighteen. 1954 marked the All-Star slugger's official rookie campaign, an auspicious start for which he claimed the bronze medal in American League Rookie of the Year balloting. He would wear a Tiger jersey for the next twenty-two seasons, then close to thirty as the team's television color commentator. If anyone deserves the "Mr. Tiger" nickname it is Hall of Fame outfielder Al Kaline. Offered is one of the finer examples of the rookie card of Detroit's native son. Remarkably clean, very glossy and colorful with four high quality corners and a remarkable portrait. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. A card with both physical quality and tremendous visual appeal.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $3,000 - up.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
