(LOT 145)
1952 Topps #395 High Number Signed Jake Pitler PSA 5 EX Card Grade; PSA AUTH Auto - POP 1; Highest Graded Example!

Deceased: 1968; Grade Pop: 1; Pop Higher: 0; Total Pop: 2
Ultra-scarce, this autographed 1952 Topps #395 high number subject of Brooklyn Dodgers coach Jake Pitler is the sole signed specimen at the 5 EX plateau with none graded higher. Furthermore, only a single other example has been authenticated by PSA, with only two signed '52 Topps Pitler subjects known to exist! Second-sacker Jake Pitler played only two MLB campaigns back in 1917-18 with the Pittsburgh Pirates, and his legacy will forever be secured via his 11-year coaching tenure with Brooklyn from 1947-1957. Pitler's bold blue ink vertical signature is situated along the left frame, with the well-centered image the final superlative for one of the rarest signed '52 Topps subjects on the planet!
