1956 Topps #5 Ted Williams PSA MINT 9

Starting Bid - $2,000, Sold For - $7,703

Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Extremely high-grade example of one of Ted Williams' most popular cards. This is a sharp example of this classic 1950s baseball card featuring the Splendid Splinter, one of the game's most popular Hall of Famers and a legendary member of the Boston Red Sox franchise. The card possesses exceptional centering all around with a clean, flawlessly printed front, snow white borders, and four razor sharp corners. The white back is clean and boldly printed, centered to the top. Out of 3,132 examples of this card graded by PSA to date, only fifteen have been graded MINT 9 with a single GEM MINT 10 higher. Though Williams broke into the majors all the way back in 1939, when this card was issued during his seventeenth Major League season, Williams was still in top form. Williams hit .345 in 1956, and the statistics on the reverse of the card show Williams hitting .356 the previous season. An exceptionally attractive, crisp, ultra high-grade example of 1956 Topps #5 Ted Williams. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $6,500. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000++. SOLD FOR $7,703
