    1963 Topps Willie Stargell - 1963 Rookie Stars #553 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Dimitri Young Collection! "When I played, there were 600 baseball players, and 599 of them loved Willie Stargell," fellow Hall of Famer Joe Morgan explained. "He's the only guy I could have said that about. He never made anybody look bad and he never said anything bad about anybody." Like Roberto Clemente, with whom Pops shared half of his two-decade Pirates career, Stargell brought far more than world-class skills to the ballpark, reveling in the opportunities afforded by fame to effect positive change both on and off the Major League diamond.

    Presented is one of just two Stargell rookies to lay claim to PSA's highest praise. He shares the property with three other rookie outfielders: Brock Davis, Jim Gosger, and John Herrnstein. The other three players did not become stars, and thus the man of the hour is Stargell. The card derives from the storied collection of former Big Leaguer Dimitri Young, whose perfect 1969 Reggie Jackson rookie blew minds just a couple months ago when it crested the million-dollar mark in our Winter Platinum Night Auction.
