(LOT 581)
"Unique for the Grade" 1954 Bowman #32 Del Crandall PSA 10 GEM MINT – "POP 1": The SOLE Highest Graded Example!

A four-time gold glove winner, standout defensive catcher Del Crandall played 18 MLB seasons and was an 11-time All-Star. A majority of his stellar career he donned a Braves uniform (both in Boston and Milwaukee), and ably assisted the Braves in defeating the Yankees in the tightly contested 1957 seven-game Fall Classic. Likewise, this unfathomable 1954 Bowman #32 Crandall subject portrays superior championship caliber, with its "POP 1" PSA GEM MINT 10 grade elevating it to the pinnacle of cardboard success. Not a single other Crandall 1954 Bowman card has been fortunate enough to achieve the sanctified "10" assessment, substantiating its world-class stature. Simply stated, you don't have to be a Cooperstown Inductee to have hobbyists drool over a "POP 1" PSA 10 subject, with this offering's aesthetics surely meriting the hallowed assessment. Crandall's impeccable batting pose donning his Milwaukee uniform is nothing short of sensational, portraying the finest possible resolution and sparkling hues. The extremely well-centered image only reveals a microscopic partiality towards the upper edge, enhanced by four snow white borders and four pristine right-angled corners. As a final "thumbs-up", the immaculate surfaces emanate pack-fresh quality, the final exclamation point justifying the "one of a kind" PSA 10 assessment!
