Description1966 Topps Don Sutton - Dodgers Rookies #288 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Four! "All I ever really wanted to do was pitch," said Sutton, and he concentrated upon pitching since age eleven. Sutton grew up in Florida and was mentored by his sixth-grade teacher, Henry Roper, who had pitched in the New York Giants organization. After attending Gulf Coast Community College Panama City and Whittier, Sutton signed with the Dodgers and advanced from the minors in 1966, going 12-12 as a starter with a 2.99 ERA. From 1971 through 1980, Sutton went 166-102. After going 12-15 in '79, Sutton had one more excellent year with the Dodgers when he was 13-5 with an MLB leading 2.20 ERA in 1980. Then he went to Houston and three other teams during the 1980s before finishing up his career in 1988 back with the Dodgers. He finished with a record of 324-256 and a 3.26 ERA. Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. Only three other lucky collectors can claim to have this card in Gem Mint. Is it time you became the fourth?

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.
