    Description

    1959 Topps Bob Gibson #514 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. 2020 has been a tough year for baseball fans with the deaths of Tom Seaver, Whitey Ford, Joe Morgan and last but not least, Bob Gibson. He was one of the last of his breed of tough, durable pitchers who used intimidation and a vicious pitching arm to dominate hitters through most of the 1960's. He needed no set-up reliever, reliever or closer. Gibson was 156-81 from 1963 to 1970, including one of the best seasons a pitcher has ever had in 1968 when he ended the year 22-9, with a 1.12 ERA and 13 shutouts. The pitching mound was lowered in 1969, in large part due to Gibson's dominance. Among his accomplishments: 8-time NL All-Star; NL MVP in 1968, 2-time NL Cy Young Award Winner; 1964 and 1967 World Series MVP awards; 9-time NL Gold Glove Winner. You get the idea. The offered high-numbered rookie card has all of the attributes one would expect in such a high-grade exemplar. Flawless centering, a vivid white border, sharp corners and a brilliant surface, are all highlights of this seemingly pack-fresh card. Many would feel this card is a little under-graded. Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. PSA has graded just under 4,600 Gibson rookie cards counting qualified grades, our offered card is outshines 98.5% of them.
