    1957 Topps Don Drysdale #18 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. The 1957 Topps baseball series is immensely popular for many reasons. One is the unquestionably impressive class of rookie cards topped off by HoFers Frank and Brooks Robinson, Jim Bunning and the "Big D!" There is also a list of notable stars who made 1957 their debut year. The 407-card promotion set the stands for the use of photography and what would become the "standard" card size still in use today.

    Drysdale won just over 200 games in his 14-year career. His talents and personality cemented his place in Dodgers lore helping the now-sunshine drenched ex-Dem Bums to World Series championships in 1959, 1963 and 1965. Add a Cy Young award in 1962 (25-9 with 232 Ks) and a 58 2/3 scoreless inning streak in 1968 and the result is a place in Cooperstown.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. From a total population of over 3,000 submissions, this card is one of just sixteen copies graded Mint by PSA with none higher. That puts this card in the top one-percent finest examples. A strong copy with four high quality corners and centering a hairline away from perfection. Rookie cards of HoFers are a thriving market and new finds of this card in such high quality are going to be extremely few and far between.
