Description1962 Topps Lou Brock #387 PSA Mint 9. In 1964, the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals made what turned out to be one of the most one-sided trades in baseball history. The Cubs sent future HoFer Lou Brock, Jack Spring and Paul Toth to St. Louis for Ernie Broglio, Bobby Shantz, and Doug Clemens. 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. Ernie Broglio was out of baseball by 1966. This "pre-trade" relic is an outstanding high-grade rookie card of Lou Brock from the 1962 Topps series. As '62 fans know all too well, very high grade cards are rare due to the wood-grain borders. The card offers sharp corners, glossy and clean surfaces, and precision centering a hairline away from perfection. Graded PSA Mint 9. One of thirty graded MINT with just a pair rated higher.

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.
