Description1975 Topps George Brett #228 PSA Gem Mint 10. Ted Williams once said, "I hope somebody hits .400 soon. Then people can start pestering that guy with questions about the last guy to hit .400." In 1980, George Brett made a valiant effort to be that man when he hit .390. Offered is a truly spectacular card that stands atop the pinnacle of the PSA population report. Of the over 10,000 examples that have been graded Gem Mint, this is one of only ten to have achieved the coveted grading distinction. That makes this card on of the top one-tenth of one-percent submitted to PSA.
Graded PSA Gem MT 10. Flawless in almost every respect, sharp corners, close to perfect centering, astounding color and gloss combine to give the hobby this amazing specimen. This is a difficult card to find in NM-MT or better condition due to the full bleed edges. Our offered card rests at the ultimate PSA plateau and virtually impossible to improve upon. If our estimate surprises you, the most recent auction sales of this card have been robust to say the least with results reaching the $40,000 level... and this was almost five years ago now.
Guide Value or Estimate: $40,000 - up.
Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
