    1951 Topps Blue Back Eddie Waitkus #51 PSA Mint 9 - Pop 4, Highest Grade. Eddie Waitkus played for 11 seasons between 1941 and 1955 making a pair of All-Star Game appearances in 1948 and '49. His story was the basis for the 1952 book "The Natural" that was made into the 1984 movie of the same name starring Robert Redford. Deemed "a natural" by sports writers in his first season, his service during WW II affected his playing and personal life both to his detriment. The offered PSA Mint 9 example is one of only four at this level with none grading higher.
