    Description

    1975 Topps Robin Yount #223 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Five. The Topps company raised the price of its packs a nickel in 1975, a fifty percent increase that surely was an unwelcome surprise to America's youth. But those fifteen-cent packs opened to reveal contents bursting with technicolor beauty, dazzling a baseball fanbase during the age of the Big Red Machine, but setting the stage for maddening frustration among collectors in our modern times.

    Here's why. The full-bleed design of the 1975 Topps issue is so unforgiving of even the slightest mishandling that Gem Mint cards are nearly impossible to locate today. In fact, a larger number of 1974 Topps Baseball cards (with standard white borders) have earned the top rating from PSA despite the fact that over forty percent more 1975 Topps Baseball representations have been submitted for evaluation.

    Here we find one of only five PSA Gem Mint 10 examples of one of the issue's key rookies, celebrating the arrival of a man who would go on to earn membership within the 3,000 Hit Club and the Baseball Hall of Fame. How special is this card? Consider this: the current population is approx. 6,800 cards. This card represents less than one-tenth of one-percent of that massive sampling.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
