    Description

    1963 Topps Pete Rose - 1963 Rookie Stars #537 PSA Mint 9 - Only One Higher. Bought and sold like a Hall of Famer, Charlie Hustle has always been revered by astute collectors. His exploits on and off the field have garnered him the spotlight but it is his ownership of the sport's most esteemed record that assures his immortality. With the recent price explosion in the high grade, low pop rookie card arena this rookie Rose is sure to be at the top of everyone's most wanted list. There has been only one PSA Gem Mint 10 graded to date, and, remarkably, it appears within the pages of this auction catalog.

    Graded PSA Mint 9, this card represents a worthy consolation prize to those who fall short in their quest to obtain the only perfect "10" on record with PSA. It is one of thirty graded "Mint" from a total population of over 3,900 submissions. The four sharp corners direct our attention to the close to perfect centering. Tight print registration results in a quartet of other-worldly portraits pop from their blazing red backdrops. The obverse inks remain fresh, enhanced by the fresh gloss that shimmers today as it did when this card rolled off the presses almost fifty-five years ago. When paired with the tremendous historical relevance attached to a card that heralded the arrival of the eventual Hit King, the appeal is as clear as crystal.
