    1968 Topps Johnny Bench #247 SGC 98 Gem 10 - Highest Graded Example! Graded 98 Gem MT 10 by SGC, the only copy at this unimprovable grade level with over 450 challengers failing to, yes, we're going to say it, make the grade. Few could argue the immense success of the "Big Red Machine" was the heart of the team-Johnny Bench. This rookie year Bench collectible is to this day a 1-of-1 rarity and may never be matched. Its hues, glossy blemish free surfaces, razor sharp corners and 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. Superb Gem Mint condition.
