    The Golden Jet soars high!

    1958 Topps Bobby Hull #66 SGC NM/MT 8 - Pop Two, None Higher. He's one of the greatest sports heroes of the city of Chicago along with Ernie Banks, Walter Payton and Michael Jordan, the only man in NHL history to lead the league in scoring seven times, and the first ever to record fifty goals in a single season. In his fifteen full NHL seasons, Hull was voted the First-Team All-Star left winger ten times, and the Second-Team All-Star left winger twice.

    This is the trading card that heralded his auspicious NHL debut, a colorful creation that showcases the blonde locks that inspired the "Golden Jet" nickname which would trail him throughout his life. While any superstar rookie card tends to suffer more handling than those of mere mortals, this one faced the added complication of appearing as the final card of the set, leaving many of its brethren subjected to the increased wear first and last cards commonly suffered. This one, however, bucks that trend impressively.

    Graded SGC NM-MT 8. One of just two specimens at the NM-MT grade level, with none rated higher. Even well-preserved cards from this set tend to falter in matters of centering, but again this specimen defies the odds, clearing every hurdle to reach the pinnacle of the grading hierarchy.
