Description

    1980 Topps Rickey Henderson #482 PSA Gem Mint 10. The greatest ego and lead-off man in the game's long history, Rickey Henderson stands atop the Major League career rankings for both base thefts, lead off home runs and runs scored. Rickey Henderson shares as passionate a following by fans who both love him and hate him. As talented on the base paths as he was in the batter's box, Henderson in the only American league player to steal 100 bases in a season... he did this three times. The pinnacle of his 12 stolen-bases crown came in 1982 when the swiped 130 bases. His career total is almost double the #2 All Time leader (Lou Brock) 1,406 to 938. His rookie card from the 1980 Topps series, card #482, stands atop as one of the most important cards of the 1980's.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10. Although PSA has reviewed well over 14,500 examples of this important entry, there are only 15 cards rated "Gem MT" which is shockingly low for a card less than forty-years old. The stark white borders, heavy gloss and waxy layer certainly contributes to this precariously low population that represents just one-tenth of one-percent of all PSA submissions. This is scarce opportunity to acquire a pristine rookie card of a first ballot Hall of Famer and one of Baseball's All-Time Greats.
