Graded MINT 9 by PSA. It is well known that the number one card in any set is subject to more condition obstacles than those stored further back in the shoebox, and the '57 Ted Williams is certainly no exception. In fact, the PSA pop report reveals that less than 1% of all examples submitted have attained MINT 9 status, with a single improbable example somehow grading higher. This exceptional collectible radiates an overpowering feeling of freshness with impeccably preserved MINT corners that command the attention of the enthusiast. The surface is slathered with an abundance of original gloss that encases the dramatic, well-registered image of the famed slugger that is enriched with bold, deep colors. The image of Williams captures him in front of the Yankee stadium stands, which contrast perfectly with the road Red Sox garb. The reverse is pleasantly printed with a deep well formed bio that shows no evidence of any pitfalls. Offered in outstanding and satisfying MINT 9 condition as determined by the Newport Beach professors.
