    Description

    Unique 1951 Topps Major League All-Stars Yogi Berra (Hand Cut Proof) PSA Authentic. The 1951 Topps Major League All-Stars series is one of the rarest sets of the post-war era. The early Topps edition is complete at just eleven cards but is considered by many complete at eight as a trio of subjects were pulled for what was probably contract disputes and are virtually impossible to acquire. This set is thought to have only been circulated in 5-cent packs with 1951 Topps Blue Back 2-card panels. When one has the opportunity to add one to your collection we highly recommend not waiting.

    Heritage is very happy to be able to offer this unique card, as it is not just the anticipated '51 Connie Mack All-Stars card. The front features Yankees Hall of Famer Yogi Berra in what should be a one-of-a-kind example. This card has a blank back. It lacks the die-cut lines needed to make the cards stand up as intended and is hand cut. The charcoal gray coloring is much different than the cards that were made for production, which are black in color. This card obviously never saw public circulation. Believed to have come from Woody Gelman's personal collection, we can't imagine that there is another Berra, of these ultra-rare production proofs in existence. Encapsulated PSA Authentic.
