(LOT 69)
1955 Topps #123 Sandy Koufax Rookie PSA 8 NM-MT

KOUFAX ROOKIE!!! Presented here just happens to be one of the "hottest" cards in the hobby for one of the most iconic hurlers that ever toed the rubber. You will not get any arguments that Sandy Koufax, at peak value, was the greatest pitcher who ever lived. From 1962 through 1966, he dominated major league hitters as no other pitcher ever has, to the tune of 3 Cy Young awards and 4 no-hitters (including one perfect game!).

Synonymous with those world-class achievements are the breathtaking aesthetics of this museum worthy masterpiece, starting with the brilliant Koufax portrait and pitching images that portray clear clarity and sparkling hues. The radiant background atypically depicts near-perfect centering between four white borders. The phrase "pack fresh" is synonymous with this 65-year old cardboard marvel emanating unparalleled aesthetics, and easily meriting the hallowed PSA 8 assessment. Over a 5-year period, Koufax set the ultimate benchmark for pitching excellence, with his 1955 Topps rookie card residing as his most exalted cardboard heirloom. While no one can guarantee how long the 1950's high-grade rookie card surge will continue, at this juncture it certainly appears that no end is in sight!
