    Description

    1955 Topps Jackie Robinson #50 SGC 96 Mint 9. If it was not for a find from an ex-Black Swamp area of Ohio one would say it is impossible for a card over 50 years old to be this perfect. Whoever pulled this card from an unopened pack in 1955 must have gently set it down and went on with their life never to touch the perfectly centered beauty again. It displays the clearest portrait and thanks in part to a fresh layer of gloss, the brightest hues one can imagine. This nearly flawless example of the Brooklyn Dodgers versatile HoFer and civil rights icon has none of the trace print imperfections that seem to be attracted by the yellow background of this issue. It should come as no surprise that after well over 700 submissions not a single other has been graded higher. A well-deserved grade for a card which sets itself apart from the rest for all good qualities just as Robinson did himself starting some 66 years ago. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9, one of five copies in Mint with none higher.
