(LOT 61)
"Unique for the Grade" 1963 Topps #242 "Power Plus" Banks/Aaron (PSA Gem Mint 10) – "1 of 1": The SOLE Highest Graded Example!

This "unique for the grade" PSA Gem Mint 10 1963 Topps "Power Plus" Banks/Aaron subject just happens to reside as the one and only example at this hallowed plateau! Indeed, standing at the peak of the illustrious PSA "Pop Chart", its hallowed "10" assessment has managed to elude over 1,500 of the other inferior PSA encapsulated copies, miraculous standing as the SOLE "PSA 10"! Ironically, the two players depicted on this cardboard marvel likewise reside as two of the finest right-handed hitters of their time (along with Mays & Clemente), terrorizing opposing pitchers to the tune of an incredible 1,267 lifetime home runs.

Their representation on this 56-year old gem is nothing short of spectacular, starting with their imposing period style uniforms that portray sparkling hues and vivid resolution. We can only assume this image was taken at Milwaukee County Stadium since "Hammerin Hank" is donning his home uniform while Banks is wearing his "Chicago" road jersey. The virtually dead-centered illustration resides between three blinding white borders and the lower red border is atypically pristine. Blistering sharp corner tips, immaculate surfaces and no apparent blemishes are the final compliments supporting the near-impossible assessment that is only reserved for this truly unfathomable and undisputed pinnacle offering!
