    1957-58 Topps Bill Russell #77 SGC 96 Mint 9. After leading the University of San Francisco to two consecutive NCAA basketball titles in 1955 and 1956 and serving as captain of the 1956 Melbourne Olympics Gold Medal-winning U.S. basketball team; Bill Russell continued his winning ways, capturing his first of 11 NBA titles with the Boston Celtics at the conclusion of his rookie season. This high-grade rookie card incorporates all the qualities one looks for in such a class exemplar, displaying near perfect centering, four razor sharp corners, clean white borders, brilliant coloring and fine registration. Of the 77 Russell cards submitted to SGC, this is the lone 98 Mint 9 with none graded higher.
