    Description

    Only a single example is superior!

    1963 Topps Pete Rose - 1963 Rookie Stars #537 PSA Mint 9. 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 graded example. It is one of twenty-seven graded 'Mint 9" from a total population of almost 3,500 submissions. The full-bleed blue header is the stumbling block that bars so many examples for membership in the population report's upper reaches.

    This attention-grabber is devoid of the typical white spots at the edges and corners of the blue field. The four sharp corners direct our attention to marvelous centering and registration. The obverse inks remain as fresh today as they were when this card rolled off the presses over fifty 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.
