Featured is the rookie card of Hall of Famer Hoyt Wilhelm, included in the notoriously tough high-number series of Topps' inaugural 1952 release. Known as one of the greatest relief pitchers of all-time, Wilhelm also started 52 games in his 21 year career and tossed a no-hitter against the soon-to-be World Series champion New York Yankees in 1958, a feat that would not befall the Bronx Bombers again until 2003. The featured card stands up to the evaluated grade, sporting pure white borders that frame a colorful rendition of the HOFer at the beginning of his career. A stellar card offered in NM/MT condition.
