(LOT 259)
1969 Topps #35 Elgin Baylor PSA 10 GEM MINT – The SOLE PSA 10!

POP 1 PSA 10!!! This breathtaking PSA 10 GEM MINT 1969 Topps #35 Elgin Baylor marvel just happens to be the SOLE example reflecting the perfect PSA 10 assessment! Indeed, PSA has encapsulated 1,150+ Baylor subjects, with only this single specimen managing to achieve cardboard perfection. Hall of Famer Elgin Baylor played his entire 14-year career with the Lakers, with the immortal small forward compiling a sensational 27.4 scoring average via 23,149 lifetime points. He tallied 26 triple-doubles while accumulating a sensational 13.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game averages. An 11-time All-Star and 10-time All-NBA First Team member, he won the Rookie of the Year award in 1959 and was dubbed one of the NBA's 50 greatest all-time players. His #22 was retired by the Lakers, and this Gem Mint '69 Topps masterpiece truly stands as a resounding testament to his amazing legacy. Every attribute of this 54-year-old offering justifies the one-of-a-kind grade, including the pristine Baylor image donning his #22 jersey, blistering sharp corner tips, impeccable surfaces, and a dazzling white setting effectively projecting the central illustration and four black line drawings in a 3D manner. The robust red oval background is the final exclamation point for one of basketball's finest cards via its PSA 10 grade. World-class in every sense of the term and synonymous with Baylor's unequivocal excellence, its extraordinary eye appeal and Pop 1 PSA 10 status more than substantiate its unquestionable stature as one of the most significant basketball cards on the planet!
