    1965 Topps Tony Perez - N.L. Rookie Stars #581 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Three. For almost seven decades, Topps has had the honor of providing the rookie card debut of thousands of athletes who would become a shooting star footnote in baseball history, a beloved hometown hero or one of Baseball's finest. Each year their sets feature the brightest new talent with many collectors feeling the 1957 set, but 1965 makes a strong case for rookie card supremacy thanks to Joe Morgan, Luis Tiant, Denny McLain, Steve Carlton, Jim Hunter, Tug McGraw and this man, Tony Perez who also has the distinction of being a scarce short-print.

    "Big Dog" experienced a successful decade during the 1970's, batting in well over 900 RBIs, second only to teammate Johnny Bench while batting a steady .279. Those who knew him would agree that his finesse of his on the field was matched by his personality in the dugout. During his tenure in Cincinnati, the Reds experienced two NL Championships and four World Series appearances, winning it all in 1975 and 1976.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10. This '65 Topps beauty is a flawless example that appears to have been pulled from a pack yesterday and not over half-a-century ago. Currently, there are just two other examples, from almost 2,000 submissions, to earn the coveted Gem Mint 10 label. This card commands your attention, stands up to the tightest levels of scrutiny and passes every test, every time. An amazing card to honor the man who was an integral part of the success of the Big Red Machine.
