Here's another Hall of Famer featured on a low-number card from the remarkable 1952 Topps issue, in the form of New York Giants outfielder Monte Irvin. This example features a nearly perfectly centered image that offers an impressive color scheme, including a royal blue hat atop Monte's head that contrasts beautifully with the pastel background and set of pearly whites that are the centerpiece of the picture. The borders are equilateral and creamy white, and corners are well within the standards for the opined grade, with a minimal touch to the bottom left perhaps preventing a higher grade. Only a single higher-graded example is listed in the black back portion of the PSA pop report. Pop 15 in the given grade.
