Al Kaline continues to be one of the most underrated players in baseball history. In only his second full season in the Major Leagues, Kaline became baseball’s youngest batting champion ever via his stellar .340 average, besting Ty Cobb by a SINGLE DAY! A tremendous defensive outfielder with an uncanny throwing arm, Kaline eventually became an elusive member of the 3,000 hit-club, and is enshrined in Cooperstown forever. Similar to his playing prowess are the world-class features of this remarkable PSA Mint 9 offering that shares the distinction of being the finest of its kind. Amazingly, of the nearly 1,400 PSA encapsulated examples, NONE have managed to achieve the seemingly unattainable Gem Mint 10 grade! Justifying this well-deserved “Mint 9” assessment is the un-improvable Kaline batting stance as the future Hall of Famer prepares to swing his vaulted bat. Immaculate resolution elevates the image to an unparalleled level, with the entire illustration set between four brilliant clean borders. While Kaline’s exploits may be somewhat underrated, it is no secret that this miraculous 60 year-old offering currently resides as one of his supreme 1957 Topps heirlooms!
