Graded EX+ 5.5 by PSA (submitted by REA). Extremely rare example of the 1952 Topps "Yellow Tigers Logo" printing variation of Frank House, Detroit. The “Tigers” logo color on this card is noticeably different than other Houses. It has a distinct yellow coloring compared to the standard orange-colored logo. This is only the third example we have ever offered in the last seventeen years! (The most recent example appeared as Lot #956 in REA's Fall 2020 auction, realizing a final sale price of $5,040.) The card is bright and crisp, both front and back, with four strong corners and centered toward the top right. Bold colors and perfect registration. Clean reverse. This is an extremely attractive example of this virtually impossible-to-find 1952 Topps variation, worthy of any 1952 Topps master set. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
