(LOT 1369)
1974 Topps #20 Nolan Ryan PSA 9 MINT

RYAN EXPRESS!!! One of Nolan Ryan's most popular cards is his 1974 Topps #20 subject, which portrays a sensational pitching image of the fireball hurler about to unleash another one of his 100+ mph fastballs. Presented here just happens to be a breathtaking PSA 9 MINT example of this highly touted subject, with only seven meager PSA specimens of the approximate 6,300 encapsulated copies achieving a 10 grade. Ryan's 5,386 strikeouts and seven no-hitters are unapproachable records, and his reputation as one of baseball's premier all-time hurlers was solidified in 1999 when he was voted as the starting pitcher on baseball's All-Century Team. The card itself depicts awe-inspiring eye-appeal, with the classic pitching pose atypically revealing no tilt and encompassed by blinding white borders. Immaculate surfaces and pinpoint corners are the final superlatives justifying the pack-fresh 9 assessment!
MIN BID $1,000
