(LOT 113)
1959 Topps #163 Sandy Koufax PSA 9 MINT - Highest PSA Example!

KOUFAX BLAZER!!! By 1959, flame-throwing southpaw Sandy Koufax was still struggling to find the strike zone, walking 92 batters in only 153 innings. Fortunately, the future Hall of Famer would show glimpses of dominance, with his 173 strikeouts equating to 10.2 Ks per nine innings. Manager Walt Alston's patience finally paid huge dividends in 1961, with Sandy winning 18 games and eventually moving on to become one of the greatest peak-value pitchers the game has ever seen.

This PSA 9 MINT 1959 Topps pack-fresh Koufax memento resides as one of his best-preserved cards, with only 0.4% of the 4,400+ PSA encapsulated copies featuring this world-class assessment that just happens to be the finest of its kind! A beautiful candid Koufax smile steals the show, highlighted by near-perfect centering between four dazzling white borders, and a radiant backdrop tantamount to any yellow sun. Impeccable surfaces, crystal-clear clarity and stellar contrast are the final exclamation points supporting this cardboard blazer's best of the best grade, synonymous with Koufax's unparalleled standing as one of our National Pastime's premier all-time hurlers!
