Premier 1960s Investment - Must See

In the world of investment grade assets, few cards rise to the level as equal to this offering. The iconic '63 Topps Pete Rose rookie will always hold a special place in the market and is seldom seen in MINT condition. The offered SGC 9 represents one of the very best copies in the entire market and fully upholds the difficult MINT expectations. As fine, if not better than most other MINT 9s we've brokered in our long tenure, boasting pack fresh qualities throughout. Almost dead centered with only a one or two point top to bottom shift present. All four corners are undeniably MINT and the fragile top edge is absent of typical chipping. Furthermore, this copy possesses some of the very best surfaces we've seen on the issue, boasting near flawless print, bright color and sensational clarity. For anyone who is not aware, Pete Rose was permanently banned from baseball for the accusations that he gambled on baseball games while he played and managed the Cincinnati Reds. Due to this, he was no longer eligible to be inducted into the baseball HOF, though his career stats rank him as one of the greatest players of all-time who's career stands on par with any HOFer. Rose's exploits on and off the field constantly put him in the spotlight however it is 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.
