    1955 Topps Harmon Killebrew #124 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop Four, None Higher. An undisputed high point in the history of the Washington Senators franchise occurred with the introduction of slugger Harmon Killebrew - an event commemorated for posterity by this always-popular collectible. The "rookie card" of the future Hall of Famer, although devoted to a 19-year-old bonus baby, nevertheless afforded the young man the full Topps treatment: a flattering portrait and "action shot" surrounded by a sea of bright yellow on the front, and a glowing prospectus on the back. The ideal piece to set the stage for more than 500 career home runs and eventual enshrinement at Cooperstown! Graded SGC 96 Mint 9. A "blazer" with the numbers to prove it, this outstanding card is one of just four copies at its "96 Mint" tier with none higher, among a total of almost 600 examples holdered by SGC. The item's print quality is exemplary, its centering is almost perfectly calibrated, and its overall aesthetic is incontestably superior. This top-tier Killebrew has remained essentially untouched for more than a half-century.

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