"First we'll use Spahn, then we'll use Sain, Then an off-day, followed by rain." Brand new to the hobby and shimmering with pack-fresh qualities, offered is what may very well be the single finest example of Johnny Sain's 1955 Topps issue in existence. Incredibly stalwart MINT or better corners meet at MINT edges around a well-centered image with undeniably MINT features, particularly in both the accuracy of the image registration and the obvious strength of each color impression. So bold and perfectly preserved, you can all but smell the chewing gum emanating off this insane Sain specimen, Johnny's last card issued during his successful 11-year career, first as a starter behind Warren Spahn with the Braves and then as a relief pitcher with the Yankees, with whom he took home 5 World Series rings.
