Description1957 Kahn's Frank Robinson SGC VG/EX+ 4.5 - Pop One, Only Two Higher. John Esch collection. Kahn's third annual baseball card promotion in 1957 was the first to feature Pittsburgh Pirate players but today there is a card that even more exciting then Roberto Clemente. Our offered card features the 1956 RoY and future HoFer Frank Robinson! His Topps rookie is the go-to card for most collectors and many might be unaware there is a far more challenging rookie of the then, young Cincinnati Reds Outfielder/1st baseman who would win league (x2), World Series, and All-Star MVP awards. As are all of the early Kahn's issues, this set is scarce with examples in high grade very hard to find. This is a solid example with no creasing and just very mild staining. Graded SGC VG/EX+ 4.5. This is the only card graded VG-EX+ with two higher from a total SGC pop of seventeen submissions.
Guide Value or Estimate: $600 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
