1958 Topps #187 Sandy Koufax PSA MINT 9

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,963

Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Only one example has ever graded higher out of 2,029 cards evaluated by PSA. Pack-fresh gem with flawless colors and gloss, bright yellow background, and four razor-sharp corners. Near-perfect centering, ever-so-slightly to the top. 1958 Topps cards typically suffer from a variety of condition problems, including print defects and a tendency to have soft corners, which make Mint examples particularly difficult to find. When this card was issued, Koufax had yet to establish himself as a star, and his lifetime record to date was a very undistinguished 9-10, with a 4.00 ERA. Better days were ahead, both for him and his baseball card. This is a world-class example, far exceeding the expectations for 1958 Topps. It would be hard to imagine a finer example. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $2,200. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $2,963
