Critically Important Post-War Investment Piece

Stunning 'Charlie Hustle' rookie card on the market this month. The offered PSA 9 can only be described as a masterpiece, easily ranking among the finest copies in existence and being one of only thirty to have earned the illustrious designation. It's quite simple for us to state that the demand for this critically important 1960s rookie card far exceeds supply. Rose's exploits on and off the field constantly put him in the spotlight however it's his all-time hit king record which makes Pete an ideal athlete to invest in. The 4,256 major league hit record will likely never be broken and despite Pete's exclusion from the baseball Hall of Fame we love the investment future on this ultra high-grade, low-pop rookie card. Assessed as a MINT 9 by PSA and in our opinion boasts better attributes than many other PSA 9s we've seen in our long tenure. The card possesses a glowing yellow background with virtually flawless print and clarity. The highly condition sensitive blue bar which runs horizontally along the top portion of the card is completely void of print circles (rare). Almost dead centered with the four pin-point sharp corners instantly catching your eyes. Furthermore, the borders are stark white and the periphery is void of blemishes. Everything is where it's supposed to be when upholding the lofty standards of PSA. How long before the Fine Art community takes stock on the trends in trading cards? What will become of an investment piece like this when the trading card market elevates to awareness among traditional markets? The only PSA 10 in existence fetched a whopping $717,000; we're proud to offer this investment piece free of reserve. One of over 13,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 8th Auction of 2019.
