    1973 Topps Test Comics Johnny Bench PSA Gem Mint 10. Graded Gem Mint 10 by PSA, the one and only example at this grade level. Johnny Bench was a key component to the success of the Cincinnati Reds "Big Red Machine" era and adored by fans. The 1968 Rookie of the Year would glamorize his position (a long-held unpopular one) while becoming one of the greatest catchers ever to play the game. The offered collectible has every characteristic hobbyists expect for the "Gem Mint" assessment. A better copy probably never to be found.
