Up for grabs is a near perfectly centered example of Orestes "Minnie" Minoso's 1952 Topps rookie issue that has been recently graded NM/MT 8 by PSA. A mildly rough-cut NM/MT to NM/MT+ perimeter encompasses a brilliantly registered image of the "The Cuban Comet" and former Negro Leaguer, who holds distinction as one of just two players in MLB history to play in five separate decades, from the 1940s through the 1980s. Some unobtrusive marks in the upper left field limit what would otherwise appear to be a shoe-in for NM/MT+ 8.5 consideration, perhaps even pushing consideration for MINT.
