1966 Topps #254 Ferguson Jenkins Rookie PSA 10 GEM MINT - Highest PSA Example!
FERGIE ROOKIE 10!!! A "perfect" PSA 10, this extraordinary 1966 Topps #254 Fergie Jenkins rookie card has achieved the pinnacle of card grading success, joined by a meager six other examples as the finest of its kind! It was this EXACT CARD that sold for a lofty $37K in 2021, now made available again to the collecting community courtesy of our esteemed consignor. Although right-handed hurler Fergie Jenkins pitched his inaugural 1965 MLB campaign donning a Phillies uniform in the City of Brotherly Love, he was quickly traded to the Chicago Cubs the following season where he would embark on an incredible HOF career, including 284 career victories and six consecutive 20-win seasons from 1967 through 1972. The pinpoint control artist never looked better than on this 10 offering that Jenkins shares with forgotten first-sacker Bill Sorrell. Aside from the compelling multi-player image, pack-fresh surfaces, and sharp corners, it is the virtually perfect centering that steals the show, with the hallowed Jenkins/Sorrell illustration flawlessly affixed between four blinding white borders. Finding perfectly aligned images on even PSA 10 examples is an excruciating task, let alone one on a hallowed 1960s Jenkins Rookie!
