(LOT 914)
1952 Topps #166 Paul LaPalme PSA 9 MINT – POP 3; Highest PSA Graded Example!

1952 TOPPS MINT SCARCITY!!! Incredibly, of the approximate 650 1952 Topps #166 Paul LaPalme examples listed on the PSA Pop Chart, only three meager examples have achieved a PSA 9 MINT rating, with NONE graded higher! Indeed, not a single PSA 10 specimen has ever surfaced for this popular 1952 Topps subject that Memory Lane proudly presents in the near-impossible to find PSA 9 holder! Southpaw twirler Paul LaPalme pitched for four teams in his seven-year career, including the Pittsburgh Pirates, breaking into the Major Leagues with the Steel City based club in 1951. The card itself reveals all the pristine qualities associated with any PSA 9 example. Sparkling hues, a razor-sharp perimeter including right-angled corners, immaculate surfaces and remarkable near-perfect centering complete this time-defying masterpiece that appears as if it has just been pulled from a 1952 Topps wax pack!
