1956 Topps #20 Al Kaline White Back PSA 10 GEM MINT - "Pop 2" & The Highest Graded Example!
GEM MINT KALINE!!! Similar to his playing prowess are the world-class features of this incredible PSA Gem Mint 10 offering that shares the distinction with a sole copy of being the finest of its kind. Al Kaline continues to be one of the most underrated players in baseball history. In only his second full season in the Major Leagues, Kaline became baseball's youngest batting champion ever via his stellar .340 average, besting Ty Cobb by a single day. A tremendous defensive outfielder with an uncanny throwing arm, Kaline eventually became an elusive member of the "3,000 hit-club", and is enshrined in Cooperstown forever.
Justifying this well-deserved "Gem Mint 10" assessment are the two unimprovable Kaline poses as the future Hall of Famer portrays a good-natured grin and classic running illustrations. Immaculate resolution elevates the image to an unparalleled level, with the entire illustration extremely well-centered between four super clean borders. No surface blemishes are evident on either side, and the pristine perimeter includes blistering sharp corners that could possibly draw blood! While Kaline's exploits may be somewhat underrated, it is no secret that this miraculous 61-year-old offering currently resides as the "best of the rest"!
