Offered is one of just three PSA 9 MINT examples of "The Old Professor's" 1960 Topps issue, with no PSA 10's ever awarded. Pack-fresh in every way, the only attribute keeping this blazer from consideration as the first PSA 10 is a subtle centering bias in favor of the right edge. A high-grade collectible of immense appeal given Stengel's involuntary retirement from the Yankees after losing the 1960 World Series to the Pirates. The next time he would appear on a Topps issue would be as the Mets skipper in 1962, with the same exact photo, minus the interlocking NY on his cap.
