Rookie Card Upgrade: 1975 Topps George Brett

A few weeks ago I posted this ridiculously awesome Icon-O-Clasm picture of my 1975 Topps George Brett rookie card. To say I needed an upgrade would be an understatement:


Well, thanks to some good luck via the eBay I managed to snag a beautiful Brett rookie already slabbed by Beckett.

1975BrettAs you can see, the card is actually slabbed under the Beckett Grading Services (BGS) standards and not the Beckett Vintage Grading standards, which adds some intrigue. Aside from the centering, the card is gorgeous. No creases, little to no chipping, and sharp corners. All of this for less than $50. That’s a hell of an upgrade and minimal cost.

**Addendum: This card was graded in 2000.
