Description

Graded 9 Mint by Beckett Vintage Grading. Jump to the head of the pack with this 1956 Topps Baseball #5 Ted Williams gray backed specimen. Truly "Mint" in every way, "Teddy Ballgame" swings for the fences on this dual portrait/action shot which exhibits razor-sharp corners, radiant white edges, precise centering and blistering hues. It is barely conceivable that this classic has endured the past 55 years in such a state of preservation. An instant collection cornerstone for fans of the "Splendid Splinter" or those with an eye for the very best. Of the 508 similar copies judged, this specimen shares the spotlight with only one other example. None have been assessed in better condition.
