Description

Graded by SGC EX 5. One of the most recognizable and premiere cards within the hobby, this recently graded example has been conservatively assessed by SGC. With slightly higher graded examples realizing prices in excess of six figures, this card offers a tremendous alternative while giving up virtually nothing in the way of aesthetics.

The image contains no discolorations, no blemishes of any kind, exhibiting a bold, crisp image with bright colors including the golden bat on Mick's right shoulder, set against a deep blue sky canvas. Very comparable to examples graded much higher. Centering is 60/40 to the right which is above average for the issue. Very light corner wear is evenly appropriated to each corner, with subtle touches but still exhibiting 90 degree square angles. The reverse is very well centered, strong print quality and no surface issues.

The offered example exhibits qualities commensurate with a much higher graded copy and the new owner will be very proud to share this hobby classic with other admirers and friends.
