With all the pomp and circumstance lavishly afforded high-grade specimens of 1952 Topps #1 Andy Pafko, all but the very seasoned set-builders overlook the extreme difficulty of card #2, the rookie issue of James Runnels. While not in the same league as the Pafko for popularity or scarcity, it still ranks as one of the toughest in the set, even more so than virtually any card in the high-numbered series. Whether it's the red back or the black black, it's one of the few cards in the set that is still a single-pop in PSA 8. Not that it matters, because this beauty is one of just 2 to land at the unbelievable mark of PSA 9, surpassed by just one specimen. Sporting the more difficult black back, this rarity has retained a "straight from the pack and into the holder" appearance, with incredibly bold, crisp color and a blinding white border that accentuates the absolute razor-sharpness of the edges and endpoints. One of the key cards presently part of the #3 1952 Topps Master Set, this incredible specimen is ready to recreate history by helping move another assemblage north in the Set Registry rankings.
