Population 1 of 3 - Impossible Card

Incredible offering! Those who study the '78 Topps issue understand just how impossible the #400 Nolan Ryan is to locate in PSA 10. This notoriously condition sensitive card is extremely difficult to locate in grades higher than NM-MT+ with only a little over 100 copies having reached the PSA 9 assessment and only three having been awarded the GEM MINT status. This most recent addition to the PSA 10 family boasts virtually flawless qualities throughout and is well deserving of the lofty assessment. What's most impressive about this card is the spectacular surfaces which boasts tremendous gloss, bright color and precise registration. Almost entirely void of excess print to boot; an issue which plagues nearly every copy. The card possesses crisp edges around with 50-50 centering and four pointy corners. Nolan Ryan pitched in four different decades; a Herculean task for a power pitcher like him. Ryan never pitched on any overly great teams yet still managed to rack up 324 wins which places him among the winningest pitchers of all-time. All told, this is a fine-art equivalent card which is sure to bring a high ROI over the coming years. Deserving of the finest portfolio.
