Graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. Hall of Famer, in a coveted Rookie Card appearance. This is the only example at its tier among a total of just six copies recorded in PSA's census reporting.

The difficulty associated with obtaining a Kobe Bryant Rookie Card of this one's formidable magnitude cannot be overemphasized. Bryant's Pacific Power Platinum collectible is one of his most condition-sensitive debut-year pieces. Reportedly, just thirty copies were produced, making the piece far more rare than competing manufacturers' premium inserts. Confirming the desirable item's structural delicacy: the half-dozen specimens validated by PSA include the "1 of 1" PSA GEM MT 10, offered here, plus a number of 8s – no 9s. Competing grading company BGS has assessed just eight copies in total, with none exceeding the BGS MINT 9 tier.

This exceptional collectible merits the highest degree of recognition for its incredible exclusivity in top grade. At the publicized rate of insertion (one Platinum in 721 packs, with 54 Platinum subjects overall, yields a Kobe Platinum only once in nearly 40,000 packs) factored against a given Platinum card's likelihood of achieving the PSA GEM MT 10 grade (roughly a 5% probability) one can quickly calculate the odds: to pull a Platinum Kobe that radiates PSA GEM MT 10 attributes, a collector would need to anticipate opening almost 800,000 packs. At its stratospheric elevation of grading superiority, this Pacific Power Platinum Bryant card clearly resides at the pinnacle of rarity among the industry's very best Kobe Rookies!

A bright, almost impossibly sharp collectible, in Gem Mint condition.
1996/97 Pacific Power Platinum #PP-6 Kobe Bryant Rookie Card – PSA GEM MT 10 "1 of 1!"
