They Say Hey Kid shines on a wonderfully composed 1957 Topps card. The PSA 8 grade is well-deserved, as bright colors and excellent registration come together in a merger of equals. The corners are superb, as are the edges all around and the back just jumps out at you.  And how about that Polo Grounds background!  This card was consigned from a collection of cards purchased ungraded several decades ago by our consignor with the guidance of a well-known hobby veteran and former dealer and auctioneer who brought our consignor to a card show to pick out some special examples.  The shopping spree took place long before the era of grading, and this card had remained encased in lucite until we received it this summer.  A fantastic example, freshly re-entering the hobby after sitting out the birth and subsequent explosion of the grading industry.
