Graded PSA 9 MINT with none higher. The featured example of Ernie Banks' 1958 Topps issue is unquestionably one of the finest we've ever offered and must be considered one of the finest extant. MINT corners join appealing rough-cut MINT to GEM MINT edges around a near immaculate front surface that shows a nominal preference for the left edge. A single print dot immediately left of the "E" in Ernie and a hardly perceptible molecule of print left of his neck are the only imperfections on the stunning and pristinely registered surface. Combined with a soft touch to the top right corner, these appear to be the only marginally imperfect features restraining this high-end specimen from taking the crown as the first and only GEM at PSA.
