June 2010 Auction

Up for auction is one of the finest 1961 Topps Yogi Berra MVP subset cards these eyes have ever seen. With 14 competitors in its class and just a lone superior in the GEM 10 category from 575 submissions, we doubt any of those, the lone GEM included, can really hold a candle to this transcendent slice of virtually perfect cardboard. Nearly every single facet presents incredibly pristine GEM MINT qualities, save for hardly a perceptible ridge in the stock along the reverse left edge, perfectly characteristic of Topps cards and obviously tolerated by PSA, and a reverse centering inclination for the north and east edges, although the entire printed area is well within those edges, and that's all that really matters for reverse centering. Everything else--corners, edges, obverse centering, surfaces, and registration--indeed appear to be perfect.
