I am working on the 1968 Topps All Star subset in all PSA 10. I have 14 of the 20 cards so far. There are a couple cards that I probably won't be able to get because there are only 4 or 5 that that have graded 10. Clemente is one of them. I'll split them up in two posts.

It is odd that you have a golf card Bob

Does it drive you a just a little bit crazy that PSA changed the way they orient the horizontal cards in the slabs?? Seems like an OCD nightmare!!

Great cards!!!

Wow they are super nice! The 68 set is hated by many, but I love it!
I think a nice 9 Clemente would fit right in !

Whenever I hear the term "gem mint," I remember that crazy card guy from the late night shopping network in the 90s.

Darren, It does bother me. I think that the puzzle pieces on the back of the cards is what confuses the people at PSA. With most horizontal cards within a set the card number on the back is in the same corner. With these the numbers are in different locations. I'll probably end up sending PSA whichever ones I have the least of so the cards can be flipped around.

Quitcrab, I have the Clemente in a 9. I completed the subset in all 9s and a couple 10s before deciding to try for all 10s. I just bought another 10 tonight. I'll post it when it arrives..

Had no idea the Ď68 set was disliked. Iím a big fan.

-- I don't know how to link E-Bay auctions to the forum here but if you search "1956 Koufax Gem Mint" under the "completed " section , you'll see a trimmed "PRO 10" .

..PS-- never buy anything in a " PRO" holder...

How about a basketball card?

Great thread. Here is my contribution.

MikeGarcia 12-07-2017 10:02 PM

I collect flips too...

..two different very old "FGS" flips....the cards are also in a plastic internal sleeve which distorts the scan quite a hand they are indeed minty , and probably would get a PSA 9 with no problem , I think.....Buy The Label Not The Card...

I have a Jim "Toy Cannon" Wynn player collection and I've been picking up his MSA Discs in PSA 10 for a while now. I only have five different ones at this point. Here is one of them, the Crane version.

I think that is the first 100/Pristine card I have ever seen.

Your son is going to be thrilled. :)
