    Description

    1975 Topps Robin Yount #223 PSA Gem Mint 10. The Topps company raised the price of its packs a nickel in 1975, a fifty percent increase that surely was an unwelcome surprise to America's youth. But those fifteen-cent packs opened to reveal contents bursting with technicolor beauty, dazzling a baseball fanbase during the age of the Big Red Machine, but setting the stage for maddening frustration among collectors in our modern times.

    Here's why. The full-bleed design of the 1975 Topps issue is so unforgiving of even the slightest mishandling that Gem Mint cards are nearly impossible to locate today. In fact, a larger number of 1974 Topps Baseball cards (with standard white borders) have earned the top rating from PSA despite the fact that over forty percent more 1975 Topps Baseball representations have been submitted for evaluation.

    Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. Here we find one of only six Gem Mint 10 examples of one of the issue's key rookies, celebrating the arrival of a man who would go on to earn membership within the 3,000 Hit Club in 1992, and in the Baseball Hall of Fame seven years after that.

    Auction Type
    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.
