    Population one of one!

    1967 Topps Rod Carew A.L. Rookie Stars #569 PSA Gem Mint 10--Dmitri Young Collection. "I taught him how to steal home," once noted Billy Martin, who briefly served as manager for the Minnesota Twins franchise to which the 1967 American League Rookie of the Year dedicated his first dozen professional seasons. "That's all I ever taught him. As for hitting, he knew how to do that all by himself."

    Arguably one of the most underrated players occupying a spot in the Baseball Hall of Fame, Carew played Ty Cobb's game long after the attentions of the baseball world had turned to the Babe Ruth model, trading power for placement and brawn for blazing speed. Seven times Carew claimed the American League batting title, joining the illustrious 3,000 Hit Club during his final campaign of 1985.

    The offered commemorative finds the twenty-one year old Panamanian at the start of his long march to baseball immortality, and it hasn't aged a day since, remaining the quintessential pack-fresh stunner. Though Carew would share his rookie card debut with the relatively middling talent of Hank Allen, no other representation from either the PSA or SGC population shares space with this one at the top of all graded examples. It derives from the legendary collector of former Major League Dmitri Young, with his PSA pedigree noted on the label.
