Up for bid is a very nice, 1962 Topps baseball card (#53 in the ICONIC "woody" set) of the American League's Home Run Leaders in 1961: Roger Maris (61 HR); Mickey Mantle (54); Harmon Killebrew (46); and Jim Gentile (46). The card is well-centered and shows only slight wear on the corners, and is probably EXMT or better. It lists for $100. I have had this card since I popped it out of a pack in 1962 and am only letting it go to raise funds for the scholarship[ described below. Your satisfaction is guaranteed on every sale.
