    1952 Coca-Cola Test Phil Rizzuto, Pitching Tips SGC 40 VG 3. Graded 40 VG 3 by SGC, the only copy graded by that service. Coca-Cola circulated on a very limited basis four (known) test cards which featured Willie Mays and Phil Rizzuto. While only one Mays cards is known, there are three different Rizzuto cards each offering a different playing tip. This tri-colored rarity is the "Pitching Tips" version. The technical grade is a reflection of one slight corner "ding," one light horizontal crease and two faint wrinkles which appear within the lowest 1" area of the bottom of the red tab portion of the card. That aside, the rest of the card presents at the NM/MT level. With less than a dozen or so known, this is a prime opportunity for a type collector to acquire an attractive example from one of the 1950's rarest test issues.
