Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. High-grade example of condition-sensitive card #1 Jackie Robinson from the popular 1953 Topps set. Bright, crisp, and clean, with four very strong corners (touches of wear to the tips under magnification), brilliant colors, and centering toward the bottom left. The reverse is perfectly clean. It should be noted that the scratch visible near his eye is on the holder and not the card. Being the first card in the set, the 1953 Topps #1 Jackie Robinson card tended to be at the top of the stack, exposing it to much more wear than other cards, and thus making high-grade examples far more difficult to find than most 1953 Topps cards and most other Robinson cards. The 1953 Topps is one of Jackie Robinson's most popular cards and one of the great classics of all early 1950s bubble-gum cards. Reserve $5,000.
