    1962 Topps Roger Maris #1 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. Fan expectation must have been at its peak for Roger Maris in 1962. Talk about pressure. What do you do when you have just hit 61 home runs in route to besting the most popular baseball player and winning (another) World Championship? Certainly none forgot Roger Maris had a great 1960 effort that earned him the American League MVP award, his first of two. Well for one, you go from being card #2 in the annual Topps promotion to card #1 for their 1962 series and you hope Mantle takes the spotlight. You also go from 61 home runs to 33 which for many players would be great but Mantle would belt out only 30 homers leaving many looking back to Maris - after all, he was the new single-season home run king for a repeat.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. One of just six cards in Mint with none rated higher from almost 2,400 submissions. All of that plus being the #1 card, it is almost inconceivable how this card from this particular time could have survived virtually un-touched. Offered is an incredibly well preserved example with perfect centering, gorgeous wood tone and four high quality corners almost seems too good to be true. Nevertheless, here it is. The option of starting your prized '62 set in currently nonexistent.
