    1952 Topps Duke Snider (Black Back) #37 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Four, None Higher. This remarkably well preserved "Black Back" variation in mint condition has not been up for auction since 2010! For decades it seemed the Big Apple was divided religiously, The Giants, Yankees and Dodgers had fervent believers that seemed to elevate players somewhere between clergy and deity. Duke Snider held in such familial adoration that he, along with Mays and Mantle they were known simply as "Willie, Mickey and the Duke." Presented is a gorgeous 1952 Topps card featuring the final man in that esteemed triumvirate.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. Among a total submissions population approaching 800, or two-thirds of the "Red Back" pop, this is one of a revered quartet graded MINT with none graded higher. Exactly like the Mint red back in this auction our offered card features seemingly never-touched surfaces, exceptional colors, crisp edges and a vivid white border that combine for a fault-free "pack fresh" appeal. Couldn't be an ex-Rosen find but looks like one.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $18,000 - up.
