    Perfection from the game's top scorer!

    1980 Topps Rickey Henderson Rookie #482 PSA Gem Mint 10--Dimitri Young Collection. The greatest lead-off man in the history of our national pastime, Rickey Henderson circumnavigated a Major League diamond more than any other player, outshining even the immortal Ty Cobb with 2,295 runs scored, fifty better than the Peach's personal tally. Henderson's collection of 1,406 stolen bases is likewise a Big League best. The lightning-fast Hall of Famer would lead the American League in that statistic for the first time the year this pristine beauty emerged from a Topps wax pack, notching an even one hundred as a twenty-one year old left fielder for the Oakland A's.

    Like the player whose arrival it heralds, the offered trading card finds no superiors, one of just twenty-four to garner a perfect Gem Mint 10 assessment in over 22,000 submissions, putting the odds of a top rating at close to a thousand-to-one. As the grade would indicate, there are no condition caveats to deliver, just high praise for its unyielding fidelity to perfection. The card derives from the legendary collection of two-time Major League All-Star Dmitri Young, an early adopter of the "Gem Mint 10 only" collecting mindset.
