Offered is a radiant and remarkably well-preserved 1952 Topps example of Bob Feller, also known as "Rapid Robert" and "Bullet Bob." According to Feller himself, he once touched 104 MPH at Lincoln Park in Chicago and, more famously, 107.9 MPH in a 1946 demonstration at Griffith Stadium. He's also claimed that several batters at the end of his career who'd faced both him and Nolan Ryan stated that Feller threw harder. This beauty exhibits perfect centering and NM/MT+ corners to counteract some typical stray ink on the yellow and white coloring.
