Description

    1957 Topps Frank Robinson #35 GAI Perfect 10. Twelve-time All-Star, two-time MVP winner (once in each league!) and twice World Championship team member. Accolades that began with a National League "Rookie of the Year" Award in 1956, and proceeded all the way through an American League "Manager of the Year" Award in 1989. These are just a few of the sterling credentials held by Frank Robinson, the Hall of Famer who's distinguished himself at almost every level of baseball activity through the course of more than fifty years of involvement with the sport. In terms of gum cards, it all started for Frank with this desirable '57 Topps portrayal, a popular piece that shows the confident young outfielder in the vest jersey-style uniform of the Cincinnati Reds.

    Here is that unfailingly appreciated but virtually never-seen collectible: a qualitatively unimprovable baseball card. Not only is its splendor in preservation superior to an overwhelming, vast majority of copies extant, its visibly advantageous, factory-installed properties have clearly enabled the relic to stand above the crowd from the moment of conception. There are no errant fibers, and no colors awry in the composition of this enduring masterpiece. The card's manner of appearance honors its subject to the highest degree of which printed cardboard is capable, and it shines proudly as a true industry standard for a much-enjoyed depiction.
