The low-number series of the incredibly popular '52 Topps issue continues to garner accelerated enthusiasm amongst collectors, especially the scarcer black back variations. The offered Jim Hegan example bears the technical grade of NM/MT 8 as determined by PSA, 1 of just 8 in the black back subdivision of the PSA pop report with only 1 higher. The surface is ablaze with lifelike colors, including a light purple tint to the player's jersey and a swatch of forest green grass in the foreground. A marginal centering tendency for the west most likely prevents a higher grade. Pop 9 in the given grade.
