(LOT 1046)
1968 Topps #247 Johnny Bench Rookie PSA 9 MINT

MINT BENCH ROOKIE!!! It is virtually ironic that the 1968 Topps set would issue two of the most coveted post-war rookie cards extant; portraying players that achieved pinnacle stature among their most meticulous baseball critics. Both Bench and Ryan's accomplishments stand atop a seemingly infinite number of players, with Ryan's all-time leading strikeouts placing him as baseball's premier power pitcher ever. Regarding Bench, many historians consider him our National Pastime's greatest catcher, with all due respect to the legendary Yogi Berra. Johnny Bench's "cannon-like" arm, unparalleled defensive prowess and world-class batting achievements ably assisted him in capturing two MVP awards and only a handful of players could possibly match his ability to hit in the clutch. Blistering sharp corner tips, a sheen/glossy obverse surface and sparkling hues are additional highlights for a highly coveted rookie card that synonymous with Johnny Bench's unequivocal skill sets, portrays aesthetics consistent with the stratospheric assessment!
