Description

    1955 Topps Hank Aaron #47 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. The 1955 Topps Baseball set has always held a special place in our hearts besides, as it pioneered the "landscape" design format for the Bubble Gum Era while introducing us to two pantheon-level figures in the form of Roberto Clemente and Sandy Koufax, as well as fellow Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew. Hank Aaron is considered the key of the non-rookies. Hank Aaron's 1955 Topps follow-up to his classic rookie appearance is probably just as popular and just as impressive to behold. His place in baseball history forever cemented in the 755 home runs he graced fans with and not once ever hitting more than 50 in a season.

    And of that non-rookie breed, this is as good as it gets, a card untouched by the hands of time and unbeaten in over 4,100 (qualified/non-qualified) attempts. Color, registration, centering, gloss, surfaces, corners--all are what a collector dreams about. Ink quality is vivid and the close to sixty-year old gloss seems as fresh now as it was then. Borders are free of stray ink and any other little blemish of spotting. The four corners direct a perfectly sized card, surrounding very nicely centered graphics. The new owner will undoubtedly realize they have in fact won a card worthy of the Mint condition assessment. Graded PSA Mint 9. Finding a better example is an exercise in futility! This is one of twenty-five examples at the Mint level with none grading higher.
