Lot 1969: 1957 Topps Basketball #77 Bill Russell PSA 8
Auction Date:12/19/2004 9:00 PM EST
The quantity of quality '57 Topps basketball cards available in recent months has really seemed to have dried up, and this absolute blue chip key is the first example that has seen the light of day in a while. It's the rookie issue of hoops legend Bill Russell, the heart and soul of all of the great Celtic teams of the '50's and '60's, and in rock solid PSA 8 condition. Centered 50/50 L/R and 40/60 T/B with a focused photo and sharp corners, the card suffers only from light print snow dotting a few backdrop areas. With a perfect, Mint reverse this card really makes sense as something to go after!
