Graded Mint 9 by BVG. Upon making his Major League debut in April 1967, few could foresee the impact that Rod Carew would have on the American League. The undersized second baseman successfully made the jump from the Carolina League en route to earning Rookie of the Year honors. Over 3,000 hits later, Carew ultimately was enshrined at Cooperstown in 1991. The fresh-faced star is portrayed at the dawn of his career on this high-grade 1967 Topps #569 high number. While 1967 Topps high numbers are prone to miscuts and errant centering, this elite sample is properly centered with razor-sharp corners and edges along with pristine surface registration. Of the 248 Carew high number rookies judged by the third-party service, this elite example shares the spotlight with two others at the grading tier with none better.
