    Description

    1968 Topps Nolan Ryan - Mets Rookie Stars #177 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. One of the key rookie cards of the decade and certainly for the 1968 Topps set is #177 introducing pitching legend Nolan Ryan. Even when they knew exactly what was coming, a Major League-record 5,714 batters were sent back to the dugout shaking their heads during Ryan's twenty-seven seasons on the mound. "Every hitter likes fastballs just like everybody likes ice cream," fellow Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson once explained. "But you don't like it when someone's stuffing it into you by the gallon. That's how you feel when Ryan's throwing balls by you."

    Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. The full-bleed print design is the fly in the ointment for this issue, magnifying the appearance of even the slightest edge and corner wear. Here we find no evidence thereof, but rather a card visibly unchanged from its appearance upon production. Colors are bright with clean surfaces and near perfect centering.
