The single finest PSA 8 we've seen offered at public auction. This card is special. Any investor who pursues the Gordie Howe RC is fully aware of its inherent production issues. Centering and print consistently possess significant issue for the advanced investor seeking high grade. What few examples that do survive said categories still have to overcome surfaces issues, discoloration, and 60 years to storage against the elements. All told, NM-MT examples are inherently rare (only 34 in the world), but copies which exclude superior eye appeal to the assigned technical grade are virtually unheard of in the marketplace. After broking cards for 20+ years, finally we are graced with a Howe rookie worthy of praise. The offered example boasts dead perfect 50/50 centering, crisp print/focus, and largely pack fresh surfaces throughout. This card is a freak of nature, especially when comparied to other examples at the assigned technical tier. Very light and even corner wear is present, most notably to the upper right and lower left corners, but overall they present as solid NM-MT or better examples througout. Given the superior presentation, we believe this card would look right at home in a NM-MT+ holder; perhaps graded correctly on technical merrit, but worthy of the half grade bump. We love this card and can't recommend it highly enough. An investment opportunity of this magnitude only surfaces one in a blue moon; don't miss it. One of over 13,000 cards, lots and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2018. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
