Estimate: $300+

Description

Graded by PSA EX 5. The Boston Red Sox rookie star, Carl Yastrzemski, is shown as a second baseman on his first baseball card—a position he never actually played in the big leagues. Replacing the retiring Ted Williams, he learned to contend with Fenway Park's Green Monster and went on to win seven Gold Glove awards as the American League's best defensive left fielder. Also feared at the plate, he won the elusive Triple Crown in 1967, and tallied career totals of 3,419 hits and 452 homers. Some ink transfer across the surface is the detracting factor of this otherwise brilliant rookie card.
