Tommy Brown played both shortstop and outfield in his 9 Major League seasons and at the age of 17, ws the youngest player ever to hit a Major League home run. Generally a weak hitter, he still managed to belt 3 consecutive round trippers in a 1950 game, the highlight of his career. Fortunately for Brown, this miraculous 1952 Topps PSA Mint 9 offering ensures his everlasting legacy among cardboard enthusiasts. Currently, only 4 other PSA specimens have managed to achieve this sanctified technical assessment, with NONE graded higher. Indeed, this remarkable gem stands at the pinnacle of cardboard success with a few other copies! A stoic portrait pose graces the front as brown adorns his classic Phillies cap with a glistening good-natured grin. Fine centering between four immaculate borders serves as the perfect frame to this timeless memento, and the sharp perimeter edging includes four pinpoint corners. When you flip the card, you will not be disappointed since the reverse side typography is as bold and vivid as its original release date some 60 years ago, the final exclamation point to one of the premier 1952 Topps examples in the hobby!
