(LOT 134)
1964 Topps #125 Pete Rose All-Star Rookie PSA 9 MINT – Highest PSA Example!

MINT CHARLIE HUSTLE!!! Presented here is a highly coveted PSA 9 MINT 1964 Topps All-Star Pete Rose gem proudly residing as the finest of its kind. PSA has handled over 6,800 examples with only 0.5% (36) of those achieving the pinnacle 9 assessment and not a SOLE specimen achieving the hallowed PSA 10 grade! Its amazing popularity is justified by numerous other PSA 9s selling between $30K-$40K over the past several years, with one particular 9 realizing an incredible $64K in March 2022. Mister Charlie Hustle currently sits at the top of baseball's all-time hit list via his incomparable 4,256 safeties, and this Rose issue surely resides as one of his most sought-after cards since it represents his first SOLO appearance on a Topps card (his 1963 Topps rookie features four different players).

We all know the story of why Pete Rose hasn't been inducted into baseball's Hall of Fame, with his gambling exploits barring him from Cooperstown eligibility. While it remains to be seen how this scenario plays out, one cannot deny his all-time hit record and the aggressive style of baseball he was most famous for, leading to the legendary "Charlie Hustle" nickname. Furthermore, so awe-inspiring were his achievements that baseball fans simply could not leave him off baseball's All-Century Team roster. The grade is substantiated by a breathtaking Rose portrait pose, sparkling hues, bright yellow All-Star trophy, atypical near-perfect centering, snow-white borders, immaculate surfaces, and the sharpest imaginable corner tips, making this best of the best masterpiece one of Pete's finest!
