    Description

    1978 Topps Molitor/Trammell - Rookie Shortstops #707 PSA Gem Mint 10. It's two Hall of Fame rookies for the price of one here, as half of the men pictured on this #707 card from the 1978 Topps set would earn eventual immortality in Cooperstown bronze. Beloved Brewer Paul Molitor would narrowly miss Rookie of the Year honors in 1978, finishing second to Motor City star Lou Whitaker. Alan Trammell would finish in a tie for fourth place.

    Each durable legend would go on to provide two decades of elite service to the Major Leagues, racking up a heaping helping of All-Star appearances, Gold Gloves and Silver Sluggers between them and elevating this shared cardboard commemorative to the upper reaches of desirability for the decade of its production. While the flawless rating of the card leaves us with nothing to discuss in a condition assessment, we can report that over seven thousand examples have been delivered to PSA for assessment, with just twenty-nine achieving the service's pinnacle rating.
