Lot #4: 1980-81 Topps Scoring Leader Larry Bird/Magic Johnson Rookie Card – PSA GEM MT 10


This lot closes on May 22nd, 2021 at 10:00 PM EDT for initial bids.

Graded GEM MT 10 by PSA. A superb tribute to three Hall of Famers: Larry Bird, Julius Erving, Magic Johnson, (two - Bird and Johnson - of which are featured in their desirable Rookie Card appearances), this sought-after triptych is one of the key cards in the basketball collecting specialty.

Among a total of more than 11,000 copies recorded in PSA's census reporting, just 24 examples (less than one-fourth of one percent of the card's population) have been placed at this unsurpassable tier. The offered example displays superior centering, outstanding color, and absolutely none of the print overspray that typically frustrates enthusiasts who have been seeking a top-quality specimen of this important collectible. Exquisitely flawless Gem Mint condition.
