    Description

    1956 Topps Jackie Robinson (White Back) #30 PSA Mint 9. A decade earlier, this brave young veteran of the Negro Leagues took his first dangerous step across the Major Leagues' color line, blazing a trail through a harrowing landscape of death threats and racial slurs armed only with quiet stoicism and athletic brilliance. We find him here at the tail end of that most important career in American sports history, the color of his skin long since supplanted as the lead story and replaced by championship glory and eventual Hall of Fame immortality. That big smile on his face reminds us that the card found Robinson defending the only World Championship ever celebrated by the Bums of Brooklyn, and he'd play his very last Big League game facing the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series, the same way he ended his rookie campaign. While the sports world has changed in myriad ways since Robinson's essential service, the offered trading card hasn't aged a day,

    Have you ever wondered what a '56 Topps card looked like fresh out of a pack? Now you know. Pick any element or aspect of a card - corners, colors, edges, you get the idea. With this card the answer is always going to be "almost perfect." Bid on the card because the label reads "Mint." Bid on the card because you are looking for one of the finest examples on the planet. You can't loose. Graded PSA Mint 9 - all day, every day. One of seventeen graded Mint. This specimen finds itself in the top half of one percent of all PSA submissions with none ever having graded higher!
