(LOT 125)
1964 Topps #225 Roger Maris (PSA Gem Mint 10) – "1 of 2 Gem Mint 10's"!

When Roger Maris eclipsed Ruth's 60-homer mark on the final day of the 1961 season, he not only secured his unbridled legacy in our National Pastime's glorious history, but an eternal place among the baseball card hobby's premier collectors. Hobbyists actively seek his most prized cardboard treasures, with none possibly more desirable than a "Gem Mint 10" specimen. That said, cardboard grading perfection is rarely achieved, justifying why this remarkable PSA Gem Mint 10 Roger Maris 1964 Topps #225 offering stands as one of the hobby's magnificent marvels.

Indeed, of the 1,700+ PSA encapsulated copies, only a sole other example has managed to achieve the hallowed "10" assessment, and we highly anticipate a fierce struggle for its new ownership. Sheer cardboard perfection is the ultimate goal from any elite enthusiast, especially when the card has exceeded more than a half-century of existence and potential wear. This offering's unfathomable grade is based on its incredible "pack-fresh" attributes including a crystal-clear portrait image, brilliant hues, razor sharp corner tips, flawless surfaces including a glossy front and atypical near-perfect centering.

Along with a single other example, it has somehow managed to stand tall as the "best of the rest", with this finest 1964 Topps Maris destined to be the centerpiece attraction in any world-class PSA Registered collection!
