Description1958 Topps Roger Maris Rookie #47 PSA Mint 9 - None Graded Higher! In 1958, Roger Maris was still a greenhorn at Cleveland, entering his second season and still had not clicked as an outfielder. After a brief stop with the Kansas City A's (and an All-Star appearance), the young man from Fargo, ND was traded to the New York Yankees where he would soon make history. The story of "61 in 61" is known to most baseball fans, but what is sometimes lost in the shuffle is that he won two MVP awards. Maris was an outstanding fielder and Gold Glove recipient. He played in seven All-Star games and won three World Series: two with the Bronx Bombers and one with the Cardinals.
Offered is Maris's rookie card from the 1958 Topps set. A beautiful card, it has been graded PSA Mint 9. Maris cards and memorabilia rank right up there with most Hall of Famers, despite the fact that Maris has never garnered Cooperstown induction. A superb offering. Less than 1% of the total PSA population grades as high. There are none higher.
Guide Value or Estimate: $20,000 - up.
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.
