Jackie Robinson's 1952 Topps card is becoming a true hobby touchstone as the years pass. For those keeping track, this example has the baseball stitches on the reverse pointing left. The crimson red background is instantly recognizable on one the most "baseball-card looking" baseball cards ever created.  There is some wear seen on this SGC 4, almost resembling print snow and primarily confirmed tot he mid-band. It's tilty, as the high numbers from this issue inevitably are, though very well-centered. Light corner wear is evident, with minor foxing seen at the bottom border, the card bright and colorful overall.

The reverse, which has toned some, is well rendered and the reds and blacks are strong. One or two minute dots of foxing can be seen along the top border as oriented, both extremely minor. The edges front and back are keen. The one-two punch of Mantle and Jackie in the 1952 Topps high numbers is just one of those crazy things that make this such a great set.  Robinson's cards continue to climb and this may just be his most popular and attractive issue.
