    1959 Topps Ernie Banks #350 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Three. An ever-popular athlete and show circuit signer, this card honors the man who epitomizes the spirit of the Chicago Cubs, and who has almost single-handedly kept enthusiasm for the franchise alive for several generations of devoted fans. The Hall of Famer, former Negro Leaguer, two-time National League MVP (1958, 1959) and 500 Home Run Club member is seen here from that second MVP season that we offer this absolutely gorgeous card. Banks amassed 179 hits, 145 RBIs and 45 home runs and a commanding .304 batting average.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10, this is one of only three cards to earn that ultimate PSA assessment. This Banks card is the only example at its level, a standing that places the showpiece item securely among the top one-half of one percent of the 2,100+ copies holdered to date by PSA. As expected, every facet of its presentation is impeccable, with no disturbance at any corner, surprisingly consistent borders that are a stunning white and blemish free. Centering is usually the final hindrance to the most condition conscience hobbyist but we cannot imagine anyone being disappointed. Superlative can be drawn for any and all perspectives! Here's the quintessential Cub, shining forth from one of his finest seasons. It is a very rare pleasure to have all of the bells and whistles associated with the highest grade level combined one card thus giving the hobby the finest '59 examples known.

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