    Population seven, none higher!

    1955 Topps Sandy Koufax #123 Rookie SGC 96 Mint 9. Only Warren Spahn retired more batters on strikes with his left arm than this man, a remarkable statistic when considering the brevity of Koufax' Hall of Fame career. But what his service to Major League Baseball lacked in duration, it more than made up for with achievement. When elbow arthritis drove the Dodgers legend from the sport at the tender age of thirty, he had already earned four World Championship rings, three Cy Young Awards, two World Series MVP Awards and the adoration of millions of Jewish baseball fans worldwide who had not been supplied an athletic standard-bearer of such quality since the retirement of Hank Greenberg.

    The presented relic heralding the debut of this superstar southpaw maintains fidelity to the theme of greatness, one of just seven to achieve the highest rating ever assigned to the card by leading grading service SGC. At this elite level, the card offers little cause for us to delve into specifics of its physicality, as the color, registration, centering and state of condition are all essentially flawless. Our most recent offering of a Koufax rookie assessed at this grade, a PSA Mint 9 specimen, commanded $215,100 in our August 2016 Platinum Night event.
