    Description

    1968 Topps Johnny Bench #247 PSA Gem MT 10! The Hall of Fame backstop for Cincinnati's Big Red Machine was in the dawn of his illustrious career in 1968. Bench appeared in over 2,100 games and was a member of the All Star team for all but two of his 17 seasons, all with the Cincinnati Reds. Few could argue the immense success of the "Big Red Machine" was the heart of the team-Johnny Bench. This rookie year Bench collectible displays phenomenal hues and gloss, blemish free surfaces, four razor sharp corners and very close to perfect centering, all converged to give the hobby this ultimate Bench rookie card. For the 1968 Topps set aficionado who desires the best, this is undoubtedly it.

    Graded PSA Gem MT 10. One of a dozen examples on record at this unimprovable grade level with over 5,325 challengers failing to, yes, we're going to say it, make the grade.
