Description

Graded Authentic by SGC. In a hobby where the term “rare” is often overused, the offered 1961 Topps Dice Game Brooks Robinson is appropriately billed as such. So elusive is this one-time test release, grading leaders SGC and PSA have only judged a combined sixteen examples from the set. More importantly, to our knowledge this 1961 Topps Dice Game Brooks Robinson is the only sample of the “Human Vacuum Cleaner” to be offered for public sale. The sole card of any player to be judged by SGC, this black-and-white keepsake has staple markings along the upper edge. While such imperfections would normally detract from the overall appeal of a card, the staple hole/indentation lends credence to the notion that this card was originally attached to a Topps file copy. With deference to that flaw, the instructional reverse is clean with pronounced black printing. The obverse is crease-free with crisp corners and edges along with decent centering. For the Orioles enthusiast who thought they had it all or the advanced Topps test issue specialist, this near impossible Brooks Robinson is a “once in a life time” opportunity.
