    Description

    1955 Topps Harmon Killebrew #124 PSA Mint 9 - Only One Higher. His "Killer" moniker was inspired by his surname and validated by his thunderous home run clouts, but the Hall of Famer's gentle nature supplied the term with a hint of irony. A consummate sportsman on the field remembered for complimenting umpires even when they ruled against him, Killebrew converted to Mormonism during his career, abstaining from alcohol and tobacco. When asked about his hobbies in a sportswriter's interview, Killebrew simply replied, "Just washing dishes, I guess."

    Graded PSA Mint 9. But if Killer's hobbies were less than pulse-pounding, those collectors competing for this elite representation of his essential rookie card should enjoy a heated battle. Like the Clemente and Koufax that make the 1955 Topps set a particularly important rookie class, Killebrew has been setting pleasant pricing superlatives with every subsequent auction as more and more investors attempt to saddle the charging bull market. Just a single Gem Mint specimen has been confirmed so this is certainly as good as it will ever get.

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