(LOT 916)
1960 Topps #475 Don Drysdale PSA 10 GEM MINT

DANDY DON!!! Very few pitchers struck fear into the hearts of overmatched hitters than the Dodgers fire-balling right-hander twirler Don Drysdale. Utilizing a nearly side-arm delivery, the Hall of Fame flame-thrower would constantly "buzz" batters with his inside fastball, and teamed up with the immortal sandy Koufax to form one of our National Pastime's greatest righty/lefty tandems ever. Although Oral Hershiser eventually eclipsed his previous 58-2/3 scoreless innings record, Drysdale's legacy continues to steamroll ahead with his remarkable 1960 Topps PSA Gem Mint 10 presented here standing tall with only 2 other examples as the finest of its kind!

The aesthetics of this time-defying marvel are as amazing as Drysdales pitching prowess, highlighted by a radiant background that encompasses Drydale's immaculate pose. Framed by four blinding white borders, the extremely well centered image literally jumps off the card, synonymous with batters jumping away from Drysdale's blistering inside fastballs throughout his entire career! New to the hobby!!!
