    1957 Topps Bob Cousy #17 PSA NM-MT 8. It was in 1957 when Topps rolled the dice on an unproven court with an 80-card promotion giving the hobby the rookie cards of all-time greats Bill Russell, Bob Petit and this man - Celtics legend Bob Cousey. A lone basketball entry of any brand from the 1950's, it is essentially an entire set of rookie cards. When Boston Garden hosted the greatest Championship run in NBA history, the period became known as "The Bill Russell Era." The contributions of 1971 Hall of Fame inductee Bob Cousy can not be minimized. The superstar point guard averaged nearly twenty points per game over his 13 years of service in Boston. His #14 was retired by the Celtics when he retired in 1963. Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of thirty-three in NM-MT with a handful rated higher. The offered example has no immediately discernable flaws. Looking like it was just removed from a pack, this is the highest graded example Heritage has had the opportunity to present to our bidders.

    Auction Type
    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.
