(LOT 25)
1959 Topps #212 Fence Busters PSA 10 GEM MINT

POP 1 WHITE BACK!!! 863. Think that number over. That is how many home runs Eddie Mathews and Hank Aaron hit in their 13 seasons as teammates with the Milwaukee, then Atlanta Braves. A record that stands today. Consider that Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig hit 859 in their 12 seasons together with the New York Yankees.

Those are numbers that that will never be approached, not in today's baseball environment of players go from team to team to team. Its not likely two players would remain teammates long enough to break this incredible homerun record. This one and only PSA 10 GEM MINT example from 1959 was just graded by PSA. Consider that it is the White Back version and again stands alone in the PSA 10 holder. Aaron & Mathews together on this GEM MINT example that was recently graded!!!

MIN BID $500
