    1993 SP Derek Jeter (especially amazing given how few modern era cards, aside from ones intentionally made to be 1 of 1, exist)
    1948 Bowman George Mikan RC
    1973 Topps Julius Erving RC

    Nothing rarer than a 1973 Julius Erving rookie card :)

    How about this lone example of the all time greatest dual sport athlete:

    1970 oj Simpson Topps 90 rookie. Card is just never centered well. And even with several unopened vending boxes that Larry Fritsch had its hard to believe. It was graded within a year ago as well and I think it might have been a bump grade.
    Also the 1979 Gretzky

    I was going to add 1952 Bowman Large and/or Small Ollie Matson to the list but after checking it's PSA 9 pop 1 for the Large and no 9s or 10s for the Small.

    There's one PSA graded Ryan RC that's a 10, but there's also one SGC graded Ryan RC that's a 10, if that matters.

    that's one of my personal favorite cards.. and by the way, how awesome is it to show cards through the packaging like that and see a badass card inside.. they should do more of that!

    I can’t believe we’re a dozen posts into the thread and no ones brought this up.

    i believe there is still only one 1990 NNOF frank thomas. Although, if you look at the back, it clearly should be a 9
