    Description

    1959 Topps Brooks Robinson #439 SGC 96 Mint 9. Brooks Robinson took the 1970 World Series and made it his personal showcase, completing plays at the hot corner that did not seem humanly possible. After he almost singlehandedly won the 1970 World Series for the Orioles, Reds manager Sparky Anderson quipped: "I'm beginning to see Brooks in my sleep. If I dropped this paper plate, he'd pick it up on one hop and throw me out at first." Of the 118 submitted to SGC, this one ranks as the singular best. As the lone SGC 96 Mint 9 example (none graded higher), it should come as no surprise that the card displays all of the characteristics inherent in such a high grade. Beautiful colors, ultra-bright clean borders, four sharp corner and perfect registration are all readily apparent with this card. SGC registry collectors will not want to let this opportunity pass, it may be a long time coming before another of this quality is ever offered.
