(LOT 687)
1953 Topps #237 Clarence "Bud" Podbielan PSA 9 MINT – POP 2; Highest PSA Graded Example!

POP 2 RARITY!!! Locating a PSA 9 MINT 1953 Topps card is no simple task, as justified by this world-class 1953 Topps #237 Clarence Podbielan PSA 9 gem being one of only two such examples, with not a SOLE PSA 10 listed on their prestigious Pop Chart! Nicknamed "Bud", this bygone right-handed hurler pitched nine MLB seasons with Brooklyn, Cincinnati, and Cleveland.

While his 25 lifetime wins will never earn him a home in Cooperstown, NY, this miraculous POP 2, highest graded offering surely merits cardboard HOF stature via its amazing pack-fresh attributes. Vivid registration, brilliant facial hues, bright white borders, pinpoint corners, impeccable surfaces, and excellent centering (only revealing a smidge of favoritism towards the left edge) all combine to substantiate the exalted assessment that truly earns this eye-popping marvel a final resting place in any esteemed PSA Registered set!

MIN BID $1,500
