Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Superb high-grade example of the third Bazooka Baseball Contest (June 22) insert card from the 1957 Topps set. This card advertised a contest program in which collectors could enter by guessing the correct scores of two games on Saturday, June 22nd, and sending in five Bazooka bubble-gum wrappers (not "Baseball" wrappers as is noted on the card). It was rare for a youngster to intentionally save this card as it did not feature a ballplayer from the 1957 Topps series; the fact that this example has survived in such high grade is all the more remarkable. Bright, crisp, and clean, with perfect colors, and four strong corners. Clean reverse. This card has always been a special challenge for serious Topps completists. An outstanding addition to any complete master set of 1957 Topps baseball cards.  Reserve $100.
