1959 Topps #350 Ernie Banks PSA GEM MINT 10

Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $9,480

Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Unbelievably high grade #350 Ernie Banks from the 1959 Topps set. This card is a pack-fresh blazer! Perfectly centered all around with four sharp corners, brilliant colors, and flawless registration. Entirely crisp and clean, both front and back. Reviewing the PSA Population Report best allows us to communicate exactly how impressive a grade of GEM MINT is on this card. For all 1959 Topps cards, out of an astounding 232,097 cards graded to date, only 236 cards have graded GEM MINT 10.) Attaining a perfect grade on a key Hall of Famer such as Ernie Banks is all the more extraordinary. We can count on one hand the number of GEM MINT 10 cards from the 1950s that we have sold prior to this auction (four!). It is hard for us to even estimate what this card is worth as SMR does not provide a value for 1959 Topps cards in GEM MINT condition, but we are confident that the auction process will establish the true market value of this outstanding gem. This is an extremely rare opportunity to acquire a miraculous GEM MINT example, which would be a tremendous addition to any 1959 Topps or Ernie Banks collection! Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open). SOLD FOR $9,480
