(LOT 36)
1962 Topps #320 Hank Aaron (PSA Mint 9) - NONE Graded Higher!

It comes as little surprise that the 1962 Topps set produced one of the lowest percentage of Gem Mint 10 cards due to their ultra-condition sensitive wood-grain borders. Incredibly, only 92 or .05% of the total 188,000+ PSA encapsulated copies have achieved the pinnacle "10" grade, with the popular Hank Aaron #320 subject yet to achieve the perfect "10" assessment.

Indeed, this PSA Mint 9 masterpiece has only been joined by fifteen other specimens, with a microscopic-like 0.8% of the nearly 2,000 graded Aaron's worthy of a "Mint" grade! If you take into account the virtually immaculate borders, crystal clear image quality, razor-sharp perimeter and flawless surfaces, you just might be viewing the finest of those 16 "Mint 9" copies. Similar to all of the cards in the Hammerin' Hank" collection, the arguably perfect centering stands as the final exclamation point for a card whose unparalleled aesthetics are ironically synonymous with the iconic Henry Aaron's home run king stature!
