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 deep red background is instantly recognizable, though this collector-grade example does exhibit some heavy toning and surface soiling.  Despite the technical grade, the card is well-centered and colorful, the aforementioned discoloration the primary culprit responsible for the numerical assessment.  The added flaw of a spot of paper loss on the reverse helps contribute as well.  Despite the flaws, this is an attractive example for the grade.  The one-two punch of Mantle and Jackie in the 1952 Topps high numbers series is just one of those things that makes this such a great set.  Robinson's cards continue to climb and this may just be his most popular and attractive card.
