(LOT 114)
1959 Topps #180 Yogi Berra PSA 9 MINT - Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

MINT YOGI!! By 1959, Yogi Berra's unparalleled catching skills still placed him as baseball's finest catcher, with the Cooperstown inductee's future including five more world championships (two as a player; three as a coach). Along with the great Johnny Bench, Berra is considered one of the top two all-time backstops, with this PSA 9 MINT 1959 Topps #180 marvel likewise residing near the top of the PSA census report. Currently, only a single example has bested this well-preserved heirloom that boasts one of the finest centered Yogi images extant, revealing only the slightest favoritism towards the right edge. Indeed, the classic Berra batting stance's near-flawless positioning is virtually impossible to find, with the bold red background, blinding white borders, pack-fresh surfaces, and super-sharp corner tips all supporting the ever-elusive MINT assessment!

MIN BID $1,500
