Pop 11 - Premier Investment Piece From The Vintage Era

Prominent 1950s rookie card held within a highly rare PSA 9 holder. The offered '57 Topps Football Paul Hornung rookie card impresses the hell out of us as it boasts undeniable MINT presentation throughout. Looking like it was recently pulled from a wax pack, this specimen oozes freshness and an overall cleanliness not normally seen on the issue. The card possesses vivid color with precise registration and about the best print one could ask for on the highly condition sensitive issue. The periphery is flawless without a whisper of chipping present. Furthermore, the card possesses four pin-point sharp corners with near perfect centering (only a couple point left to right shift is present). Investors love this iconic Football set with its player portrait side-by-side with an 'action' scene on the front of each horizontally oriented piece. The demand for PSA 9 examples, especially key Hall of Famers like Hornung, far exceed supply. Hornung or 'The Golden Boy' won four NFL titles and the first Super Bowl. He was the first pro football player to win the Heisman Trophy, be selected #1 overall in the draft, win the NFL MVP award and be inducted into both the professional and college football halls of fame. All told, this is a stunning offering which is only deserving of the finest portfolio. Comes highly recommended by PWCC.
