Critically Important Investment Piece

Arguably the most under valued rookie card from the 1970s, especially in PSA 10 grade. To date, PSA has assessed 9,760 Eddie Murray rookie cards with only 18 having earned the illustrious assessment. Just to put that into perspective, roughly 1 in every 543 examples graded were awarded the GEM MINT designation. This is simply a unicorn rookie card which almost never surfaces to the open market as these few copies are locked up in private portfolios. The card offered here is truly breathtaking and showcases pack fresh qualities throughout. Perfectly aligned from all sides with four exceedingly sharp corners and rock-solid card stock. The periphery is void of any typical chipping with stark white borders which surround a tremendous close up illustration of the legendary HOFer. In addition, the surfaces exhibit a thick layer of gloss with no indentations and precise registration. Despite a few flecks of excess print, this card fully lives up to the hype. Eddie Murray was a model of consistency during his career and is one of only six total men to claim membership in both the 500 Home Run and 3,000 Hit Clubs. When you compare the value of this rookie card against others such as Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Albert Pujols and even Alex Rodriguez, it seems destined that this will soon be a $25,000+ card. A premier investment commodity which comes with PWCC's highest recommendation. Please see the video highlight for more details on this highly coveted offering.
