(LOT 213)
"Unique for the Grade" 1952 Bowman #122 Billy Johnson PSA 10 GEM MINT – "POP 1"; The SOLE Highest Graded Example!

By-gone third sacker Billy Johnson played nine MLB seasons, seven of them with the New York Yankees where he joined forces with the likes of Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra to ably assist the Big Apple squad in winning four World Championships (1943, '47, '49, '50). The formidable hitting Johnson enjoyed his finest campaign at the hot corner in 1947 when he knocked in 95 runs, belted 10 round-trippers and batted .285. A member of the 1947 American League All-Star team, synonymous to his championship seasons is this miraculous PSA 10 GEM MINT 1952 Bowman #122 marvel that stands as the undisputed finest of its kind on the prestigious PSA Pop Chart!

The absolutely breathtaking pose reveals Johnson in his Cardinals uniform, with the third baseman traded to St. Louis during the 1951 campaign. The lithographic illustration bursts with sparkling hues and reveals near-impossible spot-on centering between four blizzard-like borders. Crisp pack-fresh surfaces and an impeccable perimeter including four extremely sharp right-angled corners more than justify the one of a kind assessment and its best of the best stature. The sole PSA 10 GEM MINT example, it has effectively separated itself from 230+ PSA encapsulated peers, stubbornly defying 71 years of potential wear to reign supreme as the irrefutable best of the best Billy Johnson '52 Bowman heirloom!
