1951 Bowman #2 Yogi Berra PSA 8.5 NM-MT+

PACK-FRESH YOGI!!! This PSA 8.5 NM-MT+ 1951 Bowman Yogi Berra POP 8 gem has only been bested by a meager eight PSA examples! One of baseball's greatest all-time catchers, the immortal Berra was highly noted for his clutch performances, with the Cooperstown inductee's World Series records including 14 appearances, 10 championships, 75 games played and 71 all-time hits. If that isn't enough, he won three MVP awards, and this remarkable offering likewise merits an MVP for near-perfection cardboard.

A mesmerizing Berra portrait image graces the obverse side as Yogi reveals his candid smile, with the atypical near-perfect centering stealing the show. Flawless surfaces, square corners and sparkling hues all combine to beg the question: why didn't it earn the hallowed 9 assessment? Regardless, this pack-fresh masterpiece stands as a quintessential Berra heirloom, and during the bidding process, please keep in mind one of Berra's iconic Yogism's, "It ain't over till it's over!"
