Graded by PSA Mint 9. According to the Population Report Mickey's 1964 Topps card has turned out to be one of his most difficult 1960's cards to find in Mint condition. Before the advent of professional grading and population reports most collectors and dealers would have sworn that it was one of his easiest. Nevertheless, only a small handful of this card have ever achieved a Mint grade by PSA. This is the epitome of a pack fresh card. It looks as though it has never been handled. His image is bold and clear and the colors are intense. All four corners are deemed perfect even under the closest scrutiny. It is centered slightly right, probably the only reason it's not a '10.' The back is a brilliant orange with only the lower right having a hint of white at its extreme tip. Mint condition.
