Offered is a virtually perfect example of Super Mario's 1985 Topps rookie card, recently graded on behalf of our consignor in the PSA 10 Gem Mint category. While prices for Mario's Topps rookie card in Gem Mint 10 condition have consistently hovered at or above $2,000 in recent years, that price is a relative bargain compared to the five-figure price tags commanded by the same card in the 1985 O-Pee-Chee edition. However, the cards are much more comparable in terms of scarcity and condition sensitivity than these disparate prices might suggest. The O-Pee-Chee issue reports 48 Gems on record from nearly 3,700 submissions, while the Topps issue reports 73 Gems from just under 4,200 submissions, yet it sells for a fraction of the O-Pee-Chee price. In our book, we call that a good buy! After "The Great One," Lemieux is remembered in hockey history as "The Magnificent One," and he will be forever immortalized as one of the greatest players of all-time. Add this above average Gem to your frozen pond collection today and treasure it for as long as possible.
