Description1962 Topps Lou Brock #387 PSA Mint 9. On June 15, 1964 the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals made what is considered by many to the be the most one-sided deal in baseball history. The Cubs sent a young outfielder named Lou Brock, Jack Spring and Paul Toth to the St. Louis Cardinals for Ernie Broglio, Bobby Shantz, and Doug Clemens. Lou Brock would help win the 1964 World Series for the Cards thanks to a .348 batting average. St. Louis would win the World Series again in 1967 and the NL pennant in 1968. When Brock retired in 1979 he had 3,000+ hits and over 900 stolen bases, both stats earning him HoF honors in 1985. FYI - in 1964, Ernie Broglio went 4-7 with a 4.04 ERA and was gone by 1966. Shown here before "the trade" we offer an outstanding high-grade rookie card of Lou Brock from the 1962 Topps series.
What is just as lop-sided are the number of high examples vs total graded examples of this card. As '62 fans now all too well, very high grade cards are rare due to the wood-grain borders. The card offers the perfect combination of sharp corners, clean surfaces, fresh gloss and perfect centering. This card is among the top 1.2% finest on record with PSA and is well deserving of the title. Graded PSA Mint 9. One of twenty-one at the Mint 9 level with a pair earning a higher assessment. This card is for the hobbyist who only wants the finest for his/her collection.

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.
