(LOT 114)
1973 Topps #350 Tom Seaver PSA 10 GEM MINT

TERRIFIC 10!!! This breathtaking PSA 10 GEM MINT 1973 Topps #350 Tom Seaver offering just happens to be one of only five "perfect" PSA listed examples, issued during the year that Tom Terrific would capture his second Cy Young Award. By 1973, Tom Seaver had established himself as the best pitcher in baseball via his blazing fastball, filthy slider, and pinpoint control, with the Franchise leading the Mets to the 1973 Fall Classic via his 19 wins and league-leading 251 strikeouts, 18 complete games, and microscopic 2.08 ERA. The HOF right-handed twirler fireballer would end his remarkable 20-year career with 311 wins, 3,640 strikeouts and a miraculous 2.86 lifetime ERA, standing alongside the iconic Walter Johnson as the only two pitchers who ever compiled 300+ wins, 3,000+ strikeouts and a sub-3.00 ERA!

No discussion of baseball's greatest all-time pitchers could possibly exclude Tom Terrific, who electrified his Big Apple fan base for the first decade of his remarkable career. This miraculous PSA 10 offering is pack-fresh, to say the least, revealing a sparkling Seaver image as he poses for the camera donning his classic #41 home flannel pinstripes. Atypical for any 1973 subject is the perfect centering and zero tilt, with most '73 Topps cards plagued by skewed images. Immaculate surfaces, blistering sharp corners, and snow-white borders all combine to justify the ultra-rare 10 assessment. One of Seaver's finest cardboard keepsakes extant, its pinnacle Pop Chart standing is equally synonymous with the Franchise's all-time standing as one of the top ten pitchers in baseball history!
