(LOT 46)
1972 Topps #299 Hank Aaron (PSA Gem Mint 10) - One of Only 2 Gem Mint 10 Examples!

Rarely does even the most sophisticated collector have an opportunity to capture a "perfect" 40-year old+ baseball card, especially when it is an immortal Hall of Fame subject from the condition-sensitive 1972 Topps set. Courtesy of the "Hammerin' Hank" finest PSA Registered Aaron compilation, presented here is an incomprehensible PSA Gem Mint 10 Hank Aaron marvel that along with a SOLE PSA encapsulated copy, stands as the finest of its kind! Due to their common off-centered and tilted images, the 1972 Topps subjects are among the toughest cards to find with perfectly centered images that reveal zero tilt.

Indeed, an elite enthusiast's painstaking search for well-centered specimens can seem like an infinite quest, but courtesy of our esteemed consignor's pinnacle collection, this breathtaking Aaron offering is now yours for the taking. Strongly meriting the premier grade, every possibly technical aspect is consistent with perfection, including Aaron's crystal clear batting image, rich red and green hues, blinding white borders, a perfectly cut razor sharp perimeter sporting four pinpoint corners and gleaming surfaces. However, it is the absolutely perfect positioning of the hallowed image that "steals the show", leaving the illustrious PSA Grading Company no alternative but to reward this time defying prize with the near-impossible 'Gem Mint 10" assessment!
