Graded EX 5 by Global Authentication. This is a beautiful example of one of card collecting’s greatest classics. This crease-free specimen of the young Yankees centerfielder has become properly and firmly entrenched as one of the most desirable cards in the hobby. The card exhibits some light printers’ scuffing on its surface and minor toning along the border, all taken into consideration by GAI while grading this true rookie of the Commerce Comet. Color and visual presentation are acute although the prince is slightly off center. The reverse is void of any wax or printing flaws, which are so common on these highly coveted cards. No matter how you slice it, this titan is a strong EX and a true jewel in collecting circles.
