(LOT 52)
1955 Topps #28 Ernie Banks PSA 9 MINT - Highest PSA Example!

LET'S PLAY TWO!!! One of baseball's greatest all-time slugging shortstops is Ernie Banks, with this Hall of Famer stealing the hearts of the Windy City faithful for 19 seasons. Mr. Cub blasted a whopping 512 lifetime homers while winning two consecutive MVPs, and this PSA 9 MINT 1955 Topps offering just happens to reside as the highest graded example on PSA's Pop Chart! The 1955 campaign would see the immortal Banks stake a claim as one of baseball's greatest sluggers, with the all-star shortstop blasting 44 homers and knocking in 117 runs in only his second full season.

Likewise, this magnificent PSA 9's breathtaking aesthetics substantiated why it truly resides as one of Bank's finest 1950s cardboard heirlooms. Both the portrait and fielding poses are impeccable, prompting vivid memories of Ernie shouting "let's play two". The highlight is the ever-elusive near-perfect centering on BOTH sides of this timeless wonder, with most 1955 subjects exhibiting skewed images. The crystal-clear clarity, pack-fresh surfaces, pinpoint corners, and dazzling white borders are the final exclamation points supporting the remarkable best of the best assessment!

MIN BID $5,000
