Wow! Little did utility and journeyman catcher J.W. Porter ever imagine that one of his 55 year old baseball cards would ever achieve pinnacle hobby status. That is the case, however, for this miraculous 1955 Topps PSA “Mint 9” Porter that currently resides as one of the two highest graded PSA gems on the planet! Indeed, the virtually immaculate qualities of this offering place it at a stratospheric level only the most advanced hobbyists pursue. Impeccable portrait and batting images portray pristine color palettes with the image nearly “dead-on” 50/50 centered between four blinding white borders. Pinpoint corners, razor sharp edging, a glossy surface and flawless reverse side typography complete this museum worthy masterpiece that has managed to evade more than a half-century of potential wear to share the title as the finest PSA 1955 Topps J.W. Porter in the hobby. PSA Set Registry collectors, let the battle begin!
