(LOT 78)
1961 Topps #472 Yogi Berra MVP PSA 10 GEM MINT - One of Only Two GEM MINT 10s!!

BERRA WON THREE!!! During the 1950s, Yogi Berra was the unquestionable best catcher in the American League. With Roy Campanella playing across town with the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York had arguably the two greatest catchers in history at the same time, with each of them capturing three MVPs in his respective league. Unthinkable! Berra backstopped the Yanks for 19 seasons, playing alongside some of the best ever, but Yogi emerged as the most highly decorated of them all. Over his 19 seasons in New York, he won three American League MVPs, 18 All-Star nods, and an astounding and unprecedented 10 World Series championships.

Truly remarkable! Offered here is a 1961 Topps #472 Yogi Berra MVP PSA GEM MINT 10 issue. At 5'7", Yogi Berra stands tall on this 1961 Topps #472 MVP card in GEM MINT 10 holder, the finest in the hobby! Whether looking at this with your naked eye or using a loupe, we believe this is the nicest issue in existence. The sharpness is incredible with four blazing white borders, and razor-sharp corners and edging. The deep crimson background behind #8 illuminates the subject image and the surfaces are absolutely flawless. With only one other example achieving this high-grade mark, any collection accepting this is immediately upgraded with Hall of Fame talent.
