Description1957 Topps Brooks Robinson #328 PSA Mint 9 - Only One Higher.
Dave Winfield had one of the great lines of any Hall of Fame induction speech, telling the Cooperstown crowd, "If I'd have known I would've been this successful, I would have saved all my rookie cards!" But, like Winfield, Brooks Robinson only saved one of his own, with Heritage having the privilege of putting it up for auction. The card was graded excellent and with all due respect to Brooks, this one is considerably nicer.
The 1957 Topps issue remains one of the most important in trading card history as the first to utilize full-color photography, and Robinson joins future HoFers Frank Robinson, Don Drysdale and Bill Mazeroski as key rookies. Mildly imperfect centering is the main factor in the PSA Mint 9 rating. Every physical aspect of this card is the epitome of quality. This card ranks in the top 1.3% finest examples on record with PSA from over 2,700 submissions.

Glossary of Terms
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.
