    Description

    1957 Topps Bill Russell #77 PSA EX-MT 6. The University of San Francisco won two consecutive NCAA basketball titles in 1955 and 1956. The U.S. men's basketball team took home the gold medal during the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. From 1959 through 1966 the Boston Celtics won eight straight tiles. All three had one uncommon man in common - 6 foot, 10 inch center William Felton Russell. Only six others have won an NCAA Championship, NBA Championship, and Olympic Gold. The Celtics would win three more championships during his tenure and this was an era when other greats like Jerry West, Oscar Robertson and Wilt Chamberlain entered into the league. In 1967 his status as player/coach made him the first African-American coach in NBA history.

    Graded PSA EX-MT 6. Our offered card is his rookie card from the 1957 Topps series. It is one of the most significant cards in the hobby. Rich hues, a pair of near-mint corners, a bright white border, and shiny gloss all described our coveted card, one rated for vertical centering.
