(LOT 49)
1954 Topps #10 Jackie Robinson PSA 9 MINT - Highest PSA Example!

MINT JACKIE!!! PSA has encapsulated roughly 6,200 Jackie Robinson 1954 Topps subjects, with not a single 10 listed on their Pop Chart and only 0.4% of the total Robinson's boasting the sanctified 9 assessment. That said, we are proud to present one of Jackie's most remarkable cardboard keepsakes, a pack-fresh PSA 9 MINT '54 Topps marvel, proudly sharing the title as the bona fide finest of its kind! Its esteemed stature resides at such a high level that the past two PSA 9 sales realized $75K in December 2022 and, more recently, a lofty $87K in May 2023. Considering that two prior sales in early 2022 and 2021 revealed $60K and $55K price tags, respectively, it's clearly obvious that each passing sale is producing an augmented pricing point, synonymous with the tsunami popularity of Jackie's world-class collectibles over that same period. Due to his unparalleled immortality as being the player who broke the Major League color barrier, there seems to be no bounds with regard to the unlimited investment potential for this legendary Cooperstown inductee's renowned heirlooms.

Almost sad to say, Robinson's remarkable batting, base-running and fielding skill sets simply get lost in the shuffle due to his stature as our National Pastime's inaugural African-American player. A spectacular second baseman, he could hit for average and power, and unquestionably stands as one of the finest baserunners in baseball history. Yet, when all is said and done, his iconic standing stems from the embodiment of courage he displayed when he joined the Brooklyn Dodgers in 1947. This near-perfect PSA 9 offering truly resides as a perfect representation of the illustrious Robinson, retaining virtually all of its original factory-issued qualities. The classic portrait image is absolutely mesmerizing, with this Jackie depiction and the black and white throwing pose encompassed by a radiant yellow background shining brightly like a beacon of light. Atypical near-perfect centering is an extremely scarce superlative, with so many '54 Topps subjects exhibiting unsightly positioning.

Blinding white borders as well as a razor-sharp perimeter complete the seemingly pristine frame, with pinpoint corners and impeccable surfaces providing the final touch for its well-deserved grade. You can literally get goosebumps scouring this time-defying masterpiece that surely resides as one of Jackie Robinson's best preserved vintage cards. Our utmost compliments to its previous owners for meticulously preserving this museum-worthy subject in nearly pristine condition, now protected for eternity via its prestigious PSA 9 encapsulation. The irrefutable best of the best, its pinnacle PSA Pop standing serves as a reminder of Jackie Robinson's unmatched historical significance, withstanding the test of time while conjuring up vivid memories of Jackie's resounding courage that will surely echo for eternity!
