This "time defying" offering would be the cornerstone of any prestigious collection, with its. Corners appear appropriate for the grade, but almost every other discernible facet appears better than the NM 7 grade suggests.
CENTERING alone makes this a must own! Edges may well register at NM+ overall. With corners and edges in the NM to NM+ range, one would typically expect to encounter moderate to even significant chipping evident in the brittle enamel that composes the white borders, but that's just not the case here. Overall, the periphery of the card appears predominantly sound and obviously unaltered in any way, looking much closer in appearance to what one might expect to pull from a pack rather than some of the outrageously sharp examples available in higher grades.
Looking past these expected upper mid-range qualities, finally, we arrive at the printed image itself, one of the most iconic and treasured images in all of American popular culture. The image surely looks better than the NM grade given. Boasting a noticeably clean and accurate registration of its various colors, this card displays a precision or sharpness of the image not always encountered with the issue.
Next, the back surface appears entirely devoid of any stains or extraneous print, but it is the nearly immaculate turquoise backdrop of the front that is most impressive, providing a near perfect backdrop to a virtually perfect image. Not only is the image accurate and clean, but the saturation of its component colors is outstanding as well, producing a palpable eminence appropriate for this world famous issue.
