(LOT 90)
1965 Topps #510 Ernie Banks PSA 10 GEM MINT

GEM MINT MR. CUB!!! The 1965 campaign would see the Topps Chewing Gum Company issue an outstanding Ernie Banks side-angle portrait pose subject, with this remarkable PSA 10 GEM MINT marvel proudly joining eight other examples at the top of the PSA Pop Chart! No player was worshiped more than Ernie Banks, and one mention of this iconic HOF Chicago Cubs shortstop immediately inspires the concept of "let's play two!" Known throughout Chicago as "Mr. Cub", Ernie Banks ended his spectacular career with 512 lifetime home runs, eclipsed the 40-homer mark five times, and is still the only shortstop ever to claim two consecutive MVP Awards (1958 & 1959). Earning a third award is this remarkable museum-worthy masterpiece that emanates virtually every pristine attribute expected from a perfect 10 example. His typical candid smile conjures up memories of this free-spirited icon, for we simply cannot recall when the legendary Banks wasn't enjoying any moment on a baseball field. Highlights include crystal-clear clarity, rich hues, immaculate surfaces, pinpoint corners, and the near-impossible-to-find "perfect" centering between four blinding white borders, with all of these pristine qualities truly worthy of the pinnacle PSA assessment!
