(LOT 70)
1959 Topps #380 Hank Aaron PSA 9 MINT - Only One PSA Example Graded Higher!

MINT HAMMERIN' HANK!!! This jaw-dropping PSA 9 MINT 1959 Topps Hank Aaron PSA 9 MINT masterpiece has only been bested by a single PSA example, and of the 6,000+ PSA encapsulated copies, a fractional 0.4% have managed to achieve the hallowed 9 assessment! Hank Aaron is on every historian's list of the top ten baseball players in baseball history, accomplishing the unthinkable when he shattered the Bambino's legendary 714 lifetime home run record in April 1974. While this mark has since been surpassed by Barry Bonds' somewhat tainted 755 figure, Aaron still holds the all-time records for RBIs (2,297) and total bases (6,856). Arguably baseball's greatest right-handed hitter, Aaron's lifetime achievements are beyond outstanding, and his captivating representation on this marvel is the perfect testament to his magnificent career.

This Aaron card provides pristine quality for every feasible technical aspect of the grading procedure, starting with a breathtaking portrait image encompassed by a radiant yellow setting. Atypical near-perfect centering, snow-white borders, razor-sharp edging, blisteringly sharp corner tips, and immaculate surfaces all combine to justify the MINT grade. Celebrating its 64th birthday earlier this year, this cardboard masterpiece has somehow managed to maintain virtually all of its original factory-issued features. Its esteemed stature is justified by two examples realizing $420 and $42K in 2021, followed by an August 2023 record-breaking sale of $43K!
