(LOT 77)
1953 Topps #138 George Kell  PSA 10 GEM MINT!!!

Here is one you don’t see very often simply because it is “Unique for the Grade”!  Indeed, this pinnacle PSA Gem Mint 10 1953 Topps George Kell offering is the SOLE PSA encapsulated subject at the hallowed “10” grade and the undisputed “finest of its kind”!  This is the type of card that “wets the appetite” of virtually every premier PSA Set Registry collector for only a SINGLE enthusiast will be able to claim its ownership.  The most sophisticated Set Registry collectors scour the hobby for “Gem Mint 10” examples, especially when they are the sole benefactors of this premier technical assessment.  Regarding Kell, he stands as one of the most underrated 3rd baseman of all-time.  Seldom does his name come up when discussing the game’s greatest 3rd baseman, yet Kell managed to achieve a stellar .306 lifetime batting average while leading all A.L. 3rd baseman in fielding 7 different seasons.  A 10-time All-Star, his only batting title was claimed in 1949 when he bested baseball’s greatest hitter ever, Ted Williams, by a single percentage point in the season’s final game.  Synonymous with that league leading batting campaign is this miraculous offering and the breathtaking qualities that easily justify its supreme technical assessment including an un-improvable portrait image, flawless sky background, near-perfect centering (nearly 50/50), blinding white borders, razor sharp 90-degree corners and immaculate surfaces.  Not even “pack-fresh” cards can boast the unparalleled aesthetics emanating from this “unique for the grade” anomaly that merits an eternal resting place in the finest PSA Set Registry 1953 Topps set!
