(LOT 149)
1968 Topps #80 Rod Carew All-Star Rookie PSA 10 GEM MINT

GEM MINT CAREW!!! After the 1968 campaign, Minnesota Twins young second baseman Rod Carew would begin an amazing string of 15 consecutive seasons batting .300 or higher, including a spectacular seven AL batting titles. One of his most imposing cards just happens to be presented here, a spellbinding PSA 10 GEM MINT 1968 Topps subject that joins a mere eleven other specimens at the pinnacle of grading success! Finding any GEM MINT card recently celebrating its 55th birthday is an excruciating task, let alone a pack-fresh example representing an immortal Hall of Famer. Carew's sparkling image holding a baseball in his right hand is pristine, with the brilliant hues, excellent centering, sheen surfaces, and blisteringly sharp corner tips all combining to merit the 10 assessment. Tantamount to Carew's unparalleled hitting prowess comes this best of the best cardboard blazer, miraculously appearing as if it were just pulled from a 1968 wax pack!

MIN BID $2,500
