(LOT 409)
1998 Topps Chrome #199 Vince Carter Rookie Refractor PSA 10 GEM MINT

VINSANITY!!! The well-traveled Vince Carter came straight out of University of North Carolina after leading the Dean Smith-led Tarheels to three NCAA Final Four appearances. Vinsanity's acrobatic dunks and exceptional ball skills earned him Consensus All-American and All-ACC honors before the Golden State Warriors took him fifth overall in the 1998 NBA Draft and then traded him to the Toronto Raptors prior to the season opener. Carter burst into the NBA capturing the 1999 NBA Rookie of the Year Award and helped guide the Raptors out of the cellar for the first time in the franchise's brief history. He spent seven seasons north of the border and then played 17 more seasons with seven more teams.

The eight-time All-Star also won gold in the 2000 Sydney Olympics and over the course of his NBA career, Vince scored 25,728 points, pulled down 6,606 rebounds and handed over 4,714 assists. Offered is a 1998-99 Topps Chrome #199 Vince Carter Refractor PSA GEM MINT 10. Fewer than 40 examples have achieved the stature of this Vinsanity aerial reverse slam Rookie card of one of the great ball handlers of recent years. Retired in 2020, time will tell if Vince Carter gets the nod for the NBA Hall of Fame. This card is certainly well worthy of the honor! And given the recent surge in star card values, you should add this one to your collection!
