    1958 Topps Al Kaline, Yellow Letters #70 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. This stunning example is as good as it gets for an 8.5 and is in fact is the only 8.5 on record with only 5 examples having reached a higher grade. At first glance, you would think this should have been graded higher as well. The centering, corners, vibrant red hue, bright evenly sized borders are all nearly flawless. Could the one tiny ink dot above the "a" in Kaline be the only flaw? We feel the answer is yes and it may be a very long while before another of this visual magnitude comes along. A very strong NM-MT+ example not to be passed on. We would be remiss to not mention that this is a scarce "Yellow Letter" variation.

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