(LOT 904)
"Unique for the Grade" 1958 Topps #96 Joe Durham PSA 10 GEM MINT - "POP 1"; The SOLE Highest Graded PSA Example!

Outfielder Joe Durham played only three MLB seasons, two of which were spent with Baltimore in 1954 and 1957. He did not play a single game in the 1958 campaign, ultimately retiring after a brief stint with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1959. Fortunately for collectors, the Topps Chewing Gum Company chose to include Durham as their #96 subject in their classic 1958 set based on his 77 games played in 1957, and this momentous PSA 10 GEM MINT 1958 Topps Joe Durham "POP 1" offering stands as the undisputed finest of its kind! Durham's timeless batting image graces the front, set against a radiant yellow background. The well-centered batting illustration only reveals the slightest hint of favoritism towards the upper right edges, with the ultra-sharp right-angled corners, breathtaking hues and pack-fresh surfaces all combining to justify the unique "10" assessment!
