    1960 Morrell Meats Dodgers Don Drysdale PSA Gem Mint 10 - The Ultimate '60 Card! "I hate all hitters," the Hall of Fame right hander once explained. "I start a game mad and stay that way until it's over." Don Drysdale is arguably the most famous "head hunter" in the game's history. The proof is the fact he led the National League in hit batsmen five times, plunking 154 during his fourteen-season career. The "Marciano" of baseball, the right-hander stood six-foot five serving as the standard bearer for no-nonsense masculinity. "If they knocked two of your guys down, I'd get four," he explained. You have to protect your hitters." Plunkings aside, the Dodgers' "Big D" led in strikeouts three times between 1959 and 1962. The year 1960 would be just their second season in Los Angeles and it would be the second of three sets of insert cards produced by Morrell Meats honoring the newest hometown heroes. Today, all three sets rank on the scarcity list of 1960s' regional issues.

    Drysdale is the subject of this absolute condition rarity. Not only is it the only card featuring Drysdale in Gem MT it is the only card on the entire PSA census report for this set to grade Gem MT. It is the ultimate example for the type card collector and is a must have for the Drysdale fan. Virtually pristine and flawless is all regards. Graded PSA Gem MT 10. For this entire series there have been only 550+ submissions (that low for a 1960's set) and this is the only card to earn a Gem MT assessment.
