(LOT 115)
1976 Topps #330 Nolan Ryan PSA 10 GEM MINT - Highest PSA Graded Example!

RYAN EXPRESS 10!!! This miraculous 1976 Topps #330 Nolan Ryan subject joins only ten other PSA examples as the finest of its kind! PSA has currently encapsulated some 6,700 specimens, with a microscopic 0.16% of those cards managing to boast the perfect 10 assessment for the Hall of Famer, who is certainly one of the greatest pitchers who ever toed a rubber. His 5,714 strikeouts and seven no-hitters are unapproachable records, and Ryan's reputation as one of baseball's premier all-time hurlers was solidified in 1999 when he was voted as the starting pitcher on baseball's All-Century Team.

Ryan was traded from the Mets to the California Angels for Jim Fregosi before the start of the 1972 campaign, and then his career took off, with the flame-throwing Ryan posting five 300K+ strikeout campaigns in a six-year stretch (1972-77), including a record-setting 383 Ks in 1973. Highlights of this cardboard blazer include a crystal-clear Ryan portrait image, brilliant hues, razor-sharp corner tips, impeccable surfaces, blinding white borders and atypical near-perfect centering, with all of these pack-fresh attributes substantiating the consummate 10 grade for this Ryan Express masterpiece!
