(LOT 58)
1957 Topps #338 Jim Bunning Rookie PSA 9 MINT

MINT ROOKIE!!! During his baseball career, Jim pitched from 1955 to 1971, most notably with the Detroit Tigers and the Philadelphia Phillies. In 1959, the right-hander struck out the side, throwing the minimum nine pitches as a reliever in the top of the ninth inning of Detroit's 5–4 loss to Boston at Briggs Stadium. Sammy White, Jim Mahoney and Ike Delock were the victims of his immaculate inning.

When Bunning retired, he had the second-highest total of career strikeouts in Major League history; he is currently 17th. Bunning pitched the seventh perfect game in Major League Baseball history on June 21, 1964, against the New York Mets. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1996. You won't find a better Bunning rookie better than this as no PSA GEM MINT 10's exist in the hobby. Get the highest graded example here!!!
