    Description

    1959 Topps Bob Gibson #514 SGC 96 Mint 9 - None Higher. The offered high-numbered rookie card has all of the attributes one would expect in such a high-grade exemplar; flawless centering, clean white borders, sharp corners and a brilliant surface highlight this seemingly pack-fresh card. Bob Gibson was one of the last of his breed, a tough, durable pitcher who used intimidation to dominate hitters through most of the 1960's. He was 156-81 from 1963 to 1970, including one of the best seasons a pitcher has ever had in 1968: 22-9, 1.12 ERA and 13 shutouts. The pitching mound was lowered in 1969, in large part due to Gibson's dominance. Among his accomplishments; 8-time NL All-Star, NL MVP in 1968, 2-time NL Cy Young Award Winner, 1964 and 1967 World Series MVP awards and 9-time NL Gold Glove Winner. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9. Of the 478 Gibson rookie cards submitted to SGC, this is one of six rated 96 Mint 9 with none graded higher.
