    1953 Topps Satchell Paige #220 SGC NM/MT 8. Satchell Paige was famous for saying, "Don't look back, someone might be gaining on you." That is a fair warning to whoever is the current high bidder. This card boasts one of the finest baseball portraits of the Topps museum of card masterpieces. The portrait ideally captures the many years of a hard baseball life in the lines of Satchel's face, while also conveying an exuberance that Paige had as he was also a smart business man and promoter of the sport. Our card is his first Topps card from 1953. It is an absolutely gorgeous card stunning in a ll regards. All four corner an "minty"Z if not just flat out mint. Yes, horizontal centering if off. Dry your eyes and bid. Graded SGC NM/MT 8.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
