Graded NM/MT 8 by PSA. Offered is one of the most popular and tantalizing of all Topps cards produced, presented here is a stunning example of one of the most iconic and cherished pasteboards in our entire hobby, the 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews card. Not only is this a rookie card of an immensely popular Hall of Famer and member of the 500 Home Run Club, it also hails from the vastly difficult high-number series of the issue, and happens to be the very last card in the set. High-grade examples of this card have eluded and frustrated even the most advanced collectors perpetually, in large part due to centering issues, but this one is here to put an end to that trend. The presented keepsake treasure has been graded NM/MT by PSA, and is highlighted by exceptional centering which is just slightly favoring the bottom edge and a noticeable absence of stray print dots or other blemishes in the stark-white borders. Corners appear sharp enough for MINT consideration. The central image is portrayed in sufficient color and clarity for the NM/MT designation, with an illuminating layer of factory gloss bringing enormous visual appeal. Second only to Mickey Mantle and perhaps Andy Pafko, the other bookend card of the set, in terms of key card status, the Mathews pasteboard continues to be revered by enthusiasts as the definitive rookie card of an eventual Hall of Famer, and hails from one of the most groundbreaking and perennially popular baseball sets of all time. Prepare yourselves for a joyous excursion, fellow hobbyists, and delight in the rarely-presented token of nostalgia that is the triumphant 1952 Topps Eddie Mathews card. Offered in stupendous and satisfying strong NM/MT condition.
