(LOT 227)
"Unique for the Grade" 1962 Topps Football #25 Chicago Bears Team PSA 10 GEM MINT – The SOLE PSA 10 for ALL 1962 Topps PSA Encapsulated Subjects Covering Nearly 33,000 Examples!

SOLE '62 TOPPS PSA 10!!! The illustrious sports card market has established a special mystique for "Pop 1" highest graded cards, especially when they boast the pinnacle PSA 10 Gem Mint assessment. Highly coveted by the most meticulous collectors, these precious cardboard antiquities merit the highest accolades, and presented here is one of those bona fide museum worthy gems, a "unique for the grade" PSA 10 example of the 1962 Topps #25 Chicago Bears Team subject. Miraculous to say the least, PSA 's prestigious census report reveals that for ALL 176 subjects encompassing nearly 33,000 encapsulated examples, this esteemed offering resides as the one and only GEM MINT specimen!

Say what? Is that correct? Indeed, it is spot-on accurate, and you would have to painstakingly search for a post-WWII mainstream cardboard set that lists only a single PSA 10 for the entire issue, with this assumed "witch hunt" destined to be an exercise in futility. Led by legendary Hall of Fame coach George Halas, the 1962 Bears would post a formidable 9-5 record, good enough for third place in the NFL's Western Conference. Interestingly enough, their future Hall of Fame tight end Mike Ditka would eventually become the only coach to lead the Bears to a Super Bowl Victory some 24 years later, when he paced the Bears to a 46-10 win in Super Bowl XX. Pack-fresh to say the least, highlights of his amazing marvel include sparkling hues, vivid resolution, a radiant yellow background, near-perfect centering, super clean baby blue borders, razor-sharp corner tips and immaculate surfaces. The undisputed finest and most significant 1962 Topps Football subject, its "Pop 1" PSA 10 status for ALL of the 1962 Topps 176 subjects will rightfully provide its fortunate new owner with unparalleled bragging rights for years to come!
