Up for grabs is a sharp and accurately centered example of "The Say Hey Kid's" 1952 Topps issue. NM/MT corners join mildly (and reassuringly) rough-cut NM/MT+ edges around a NM/MT or better image that marginally favors the top border. The reverse shows perfect GEM MINT centering with nary an imperfection in its pristine surface, while the obverse can only be called NM/MT due to some subtle print primarily in the area of Willie's mouth. Excepting this relatively insignificant NM/MT print, the remainder of the surface appears NM/MT+ to MINT and boasts a tremendously bold and accurately registered image.
