(LOT 100)
1968 Topps #355 Ernie Banks PSA 10 GEM MINT - Highest PSA Example!

MR. CUB PSA 10!!! The 1968 campaign would see the great Ernie Banks post another formidable campaign, with this HOF first-sacker belting 32 round-trippers. That same season, the Topps Chewing Gum Company would issue a popular Ernie Banks batting pose #355 subject, with this remarkable PSA 10 GEM MINT offering proudly residing at the top of the PSA Pop Chart! No player was worshiped more than Ernie Banks, and one mention of this iconic Hall of Fame 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 to claim two consecutive MVP Awards. Earning a third MVP is this remarkable masterpiece depicting every pristine attribute expected from a perfect 10. The timeless batting pose reveals Banks depicting a typical candid smile, for we simply cannot recall when the legendary Banks wasn't enjoying any moment on a baseball field. Emanating crystal-clear clarity, rich hues, and impeccable surfaces, the classic batting image exhibits excellent centering. Razor-sharp edges end at four pinpoint corners, the final highlight for a card more than deserving of the pinnacle PSA assessment!
