(LOT 132)
1933 Goudey #127 Mel Ott PSA 8 NM-MT

PACK-FRESH OTT!!! This magnificent PSA 8 NM-MT 1933 Goudey #127 Mel Ott masterpiece has only been bested by a meager seven PSA examples! Nicknamed "Master Melvin" by his peers, Ott will always be best remembered for his high right leg kick, utilized as a timing mechanism for his unorthodox swing, leading to his uncanny power and immortality. Until Aaron and Mays came along, Ott was considered the Babe Ruth of the National League, with his 511 lifetime round-trippers residing as the Senior Circuit's top figure until Mays became the first National Leaguer to eclipse his mark. Over his distinguished 22-year career with the Giants, he led the NL in home runs six times, and this PSA 8 gem is a perfect testament to his unbridled legacy. Most significant are the sparkling portrait image and breathtaking sage green setting that reveal virtually perfect 50/50 centering between four dazzling white borders. Pack-fresh surfaces and pinpoint corners are the final attributes supporting the seldom surfacing PSA 8 assessment, with this spellbinding 90-year-old keepsake conjuring up memories of the immortal Ott and his widespread Big Apple popularity!
