There’s been one card firmly on my collecting radar of late — and it’s a Rookie Card that I have gone on record a few times as being a perfect card.
And yet I — and many others — can’t find a perfect copy.
There have been 3,959 1980 Topps Rickey Henderson RCs go through Beckett Grading Services through the years and there’s not been a single BVG 10 on the pop report. Beyond that, just seven have made a 9.5 slab. (I’m down in the 8.5 and lower territory, myself.)
Sadly, none of the four I’ve picked up raw in the last month or so will make that cut, either, but that’s life and it got me thinking that my present obsession with this card may make for a perfect Your Turn page in the upcoming Rookies Issue of Beckett Sports Card Monthly.
We have a simple question for you, and we’ll run a selection of the best answers in the upcoming issue as long as you leave your name and location in the comments below.
If you could own just one perfect BGS/BVG 10 Rookie Card (any sport), what would it be?
