(LOT 255)
1959 Topps #380 Hank Aaron (PSA Gem Mint 10) - Only One of its Kind!

Many avid baseball fans still consider Hank Aaron the all-time home run king since he achieved his 755-mark clearly free of any performance enhancing drugs. With that in mind, this supreme "1 of 1" PSA Gem Mint 10 1959 Topps Hank Aaron offering justifiably resides as the perfect testament for his all-time homer mark. Imagine, of the approximate 3,4000+ encapsulated 1959 Topps Aaron's, this PSA "10" heirloom stands alone as the pinnacle example! Henry Aaron is on every historian's list of the top ten baseball players in baseball history. Aaron accomplished the "unthinkable" when he shattered the "Bambino" legendary 714 lifetime home run record as well as claiming the all-time record for runs batted in without the use of a single performance enhancing substance.

Arguably, the greatest right-handed hitter ever (with all due respect to Hornsby and Foxx), Aaron's lifetime achievements are beyond outstanding and his pristine representation on this breathtaking gem defies virtually all odds considering it celebrated its 58th birthday in 2017. This magnificent offering easily portrays all of the necessary aesthetic qualities to substantiate its superior assessment, and any elite collector would be challenged to find a finer looking Hank Aaron specimen. The card itself emanates pristine quality for every feasible technical aspect of the grading procedure, staring with a flawless and youthful looking Aaron portrait image encompassed by a radiant yellow backdrop.

Virtually perfect centering, blinding white borders, razor sharp edging, the finest pin-point corners, and immaculate surfaces all combine to justify the incredible assigned grade. Sometimes the hobbyist loses sight that the 1950's cards have now exceeded more than a half-century in age, yet somehow this offered gem has managed to maintain all of its original pristine features. Any visually striking cardboard example of the first player ever to surpass "The Babe's" home run mark is worth pursuing, but a "best of the rest" card of that same player is a "must have" for any esteemed enthusiast. If you are a collector that will settle for nothing less than the finest cardboard specimens, don't hesitate one moment in claiming ownership of this miraculous Aaron offering that unquestionably stands alone as his premier 1959 Topps issue!
