    Description

    1968 Topps Nolan Ryan - Mets Rookies #177 PSA Mint 9. Nolan Ryan laid out the paving stones of his path to Cooperstown one overpowered opposing batsmen at a time with a fast ball that occasionally lit up the third digit of the speedometer. 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 Mint 9. Less than 1% of the total pop that is approaching 10,000 currently (with just one higher) have rated as high. The full-bleed print design is the fly in the ointment, 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, registration strong, and centering nearly perfect.
