Graded MINT 9 by PSA with just two higher-graded copies known to the industry. Few cards provoke an observer's sense of wonder to a greater extent than this treasured collectible of Sandy Koufax, a horizontally oriented masterpiece from Topps' 1956 series. Nostalgia appears to seep from the card's every fiber, and its colorful, flattering motif forms a forever-cherished tribute to the gentlemanly Hall of Famer. The offered example has adroitly retained this incomparable "feel," and presents the quality to the modern hobby with a grace well worthy of its subject. In this copy, centering is commendable, and especially so in comparison to the alignment most often seen in the sometimes-finicky issue. Its gloss remains extremely fresh, and its smoothly painted cardfront shimmers with clarity. Here's an enviable, second-year commemoration of Koufax' surpassing excellence, in wholly uncirculated Mint condition.
