Graded MINT 9 by PSA. Only two examples grade higher out of 5,229 cards evaluated to date by PSA. Stunning ultra-high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Hank Aaron from the classic 1954 Topps series. Hank Aaron's rookie card is one of the most famous and iconic cards in all of collecting and is naturally a favorite of many collectors, but is rarely found in this superb high-grade. This is one of the finest examples of this classic card that we have ever seen or offered! The card exhibits four razor sharp corners, perfect gloss, crisp flawless registration, a bright and clean front and back, no printing defects, and extraordinarily vibrant colors. It is also virtually perfectly centered, which is rare for this card. Clean and boldly printed reverse with a crisp green border free of any chipping. Aaron is one of the key cards to the 1954 Topps set and is one of four Hall of Fame rookies making their Topps debut that year (Banks, Kaline, and Lasorda are the other three). The market for ultra-high-grade 1954 Topps #128 Aaron rookies has soared to new levels, with 2018 sales of $168,000 and $144,000 reported for PSA MINT 9 examples. This is a stunning example of Hank Aaron’s rookie card, in extremely high grade, is one of the most popular and classic of all 1950s bubble-gum cards, and would be a worthy addition to any world-class Hank Aaron, Hall of Fame rookie, or classic-card collection. Reserve $50,000. Estimate $100,000+.
