    1954 Topps Ted Williams #1 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. For Ted Williams fans, the 1954 Topps baseball issue delivered a special treat with the superstar slugger appearing on both the first and final cards. Contract disputes led to his removal from the 1954 Bowman issue so when you want to kick a gum company when they are down, who better to parade than baseball's greatest hitter. On a historical note, the Red Sox hero retired on September 26, 1954 after the season's end. Ultimately, he'd be coaxed back into service with a $98,000 salary, earning "Comeback Player of the Year" honors in 1955.

    Graded PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. One of just six to rank at the NM-MT+ level with a mere handful rated higher. This condition scarcity stands at the forefront of quality thanks to a remarkable combination that four sharp corners, problem-free surfaces, fresh gloss and uncompromising color. Factor in the fact that the first and last cards from any set tend to be particularly difficult to find in high grade, the condition of this card becomes all the more alluring.
