SGC Pop 1 of 3 - Important Investment Piece

Among the finest investment pieces in the market! The 1966 Topps Bobby Orr rookie card is among the most coveted Hockey cards in existence and virtually impossible to locate in such high-grade. The offered masterpiece lies within a new SGC 9 holder and is one of just three copies to have earned the illustrious designation. This card is virtually flawless from every angle and fully lives up to the lofty assessment. This card, like cards from the 1955 Bowman Baseball set, is surrounded by brown borders and is highly susceptible to chipping. This card appears as if it was cut on the production line just yesterday with absolutely zero edge wear present. The card boasts virtually perfect centering with dagger corners and undeniable MINT card stock. The gloss is shiny and beautiful throughout which suggests this card's handling was kept to a bare minimum. On top of all of these elite qualities, the print is impeccable and the registration is precise. Arguably the single finest example in the world and boasting many attributes of a GEM MINT card. At a very young age Orr had all the skills needed to succeed in the NHL - superb speed, phenomenal stick skills, and sensational defensive talent. Throughout his career, Orr earned three Hart Trophies, two Art Ross Trophies, two Conn Smythe Trophies, one Calder Trophy, eight Norris Trophies and countless other awards. It's safe to assume the population will not increase meaningfully over the coming years, and as such, this offering presents perhaps a one-time chance to acquire a world class asset, ahead of the investment wave. All told, this is certainly one of the most important Hockey rookie cards ever auctioned publicly, but perhaps more intriguing is the future ROI of this Fine Art equivalent investment piece as the entire trading card market continues to mature. One of over 19,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots. The PWCC Vault is now live!
