Description

    1955 Topps Harmon Killebrew #124 SGC 96 Mint 9. An undisputed high point in the history of the Washington Senators franchise occurred with the introduction of slugger Harmon Killebrew - an event commemorated for posterity by this always-popular collectible. The "rookie card" of the future Hall of Famer, although devoted to a 19-year-old bonus baby, nevertheless afforded the young man the full Topps treatment: a flattering portrait and "action shot" surrounded by a sea of bright yellow on the front, and a glowing prospectus on the back. The ideal piece to set the stage for more than 500 career home runs and eventual enshrinement at Cooperstown!

    A "blazer" with the numbers to prove it, this outstanding card is one of just two copies at its SGC tier (none higher) among a total of more than 300 examples holdered by that company. The item's print quality is exemplary, its centering is almost perfectly calibrated, and its overall aesthetic is incontestably superior. And, the presence of a couple of tiny, stray fibers at the ends of the card - characterizing an attractive "rough cut" - affirms that this top-tier Killebrew has remained essentially untouched for more than a half-century.
