1952 Topps Andy Pafko

You might not think of Andy Pafko as a star, but the 1952 Topps Andy Pafko card is one of the most sought after cards in the hobby. It's true that he is not a household name but this card is a very important part of the set, and is very hard to find in nice condition. The 1952 Topps Andy Pafko card was the first card in the set, and thus was placed at the top of most kids piles of cards and then wrapped with one or multiple rubber bands. The top card took the brunt of the rubber band trauma and was usually severely damaged, but no one really cared about the condition of the cards in 1952. Add in the tough centering issues from the era and the printing flaws, and you get one of the hardest cards to find in mint condition.

The 1952 Topps Andy Pafko card is the only non-major star to make the list of the top baseball cards in the hobby by PSA. There has only been one PSA 10 gem mint card ever graded by PSA, and no PSA 9 examples have been discovered. Only a handful of 8's have surfaced, thus driving up demand for the card. The PSA 10 1952 Pafko card sold for over $83,000!
