(LOT 63)
1957 Topps #20 Hank Aaron PSA 9 MINT – Highest PSA Graded Example!

HIGHEST GRADED AARON!!! Only a handful of the most coveted Hank Aaron issues could possibly boast the breathtaking aesthetics of this PSA 9 MINT 1957 Topps Hank Aaron gem that shares the spotlight as the finest of its kind! Currently, of the approximate 5,400 PSA encapsulated examples, a fractional 0.6% have achieved the hallowed 9 assessment, with not a single copy graded higher. The 1957 campaign would be a special year for the immortal Hammerin' Hank, as Aaron would lead the Senior Circuit with 44 home runs and 132 runs batted in while posting a stellar .322 batting average. This incredible season would eventually lead to his first MVP Award and world championship, ably assisting the Milwaukee Braves in besting the mighty Yankees in the 1957 Fall Classic.

Similar to his remarkable 755 lifetime round-trippers, his representation on this offering is remarkable! You have to ponder what it truly requires to achieve a 10 GEM MINT assessment since this offering appears to provide all of the necessary technical qualities. Its overall radiance places it as one of the finest-looking examples on the planet, with its only imperfection being the image's modest favoritism towards the lower left edges. First and foremost, a flawless young Aaron reverse batting stance image graces the obverse side, reflecting zero ill-effects from nearly 66 years of potential wear. The pristine image resides between four snow-white borders, and the blistering sharp corners and immaculate surfaces are the final exclamation points for this pack-fresh gem that truly stands as one of Henry Aaron's finest preserved 1950s cardboard mementos!
