Graded 80 EX/NM 6 by SGC. Hall of Famer. This is one of two examples at its tier (with one graded higher) among a total of 94 copies recorded in SGC's census reporting. This alluring collectible delivers timeless aesthetic beauty, and portrays a popular and important player. The "bare hand" pose of the legendary pitcher, seen here, has always been considered one of the most artistically pleasing entries in the hobby’s classic set. In its design, the athlete is shown in a gray uniform that contrasts gracefully with the bright yellow-orange sky and green infield grass in the background. These wonderful colors are framed on this specimen by unsullied white borders, and all of its corners remain well-shaped. This is a truly enviable treasure, and a card that will handily exceed all but the most stringent expectations of quality. Clean "Piedmont - 150 Subjects" back. Excellent to Near Mint condition.
