Graded MINT 9 by PSA, one of just two copies ever to ascend that tier with none graded higher. Collectors will rejoice at the sight of this suitably majestic, period tribute to "King Carl." As a player, Carl Hubbell amassed 253 wins (supported by a sub-3.00 ERA) en route to his enshrinement at Cooperstown. The career-contemporary Hubbell memento here offered features a gleaming black-and-white photograph on its obverse, and sharply printed bio text—with the Hall of Famer's name displayed in mixed upper-and-lower-case characters—on its back. With corners that have maintained their original integrity down to the last fiber, and complete freedom from age toning over every pore of its surface, this exceptionally strong piece merits inclusion in the finest world-class collection. Breathtaking Mint condition.
