Description

    1979 Topps Ozzie Smith #116 SGC 98 Gem 10 - Pop One, None Higher! Twenty-two year old Ozzie Smith became a member of the Walla Walla (WA) Padres of the Northwest League in 1977. Just one year later, on April 7, 1978, Smith would make his debut as shortstop for the Major League San Diego Padres club and the rest, as they say, is history. Like death and taxes, the prospect of Ozzie Smith winning a Gold Glove annually seemed inevitable. During his nineteen year Hall of Fame career, Smith was presented with a Gold Glove Award fifteen times. "The Wizard of Oz" is as famous for his back flips as he is for his major league records for career assists (8,375), 2,511 games at short (NL record), winning the NL Gold Glove Award 13 consecutive seasons and making 15 All-Star Game appearances.

    Graded SGC 98 Gem 10. Offered is the finest example of his 1979 Topps rookie card in an SGC holder! Every bell and whistle you could demand is here - four razor sharp corners, flawless surfaces and and gloss. "Perfect" also describes the centering which every '79 Topps fan knows can be an issue if one insists on precision. If you are a passionate Ozzie Smith or '79 Topps specialist, this is a very rare chance to add one of the finest examples on record.
