Holding the distinction as one of the most valuable cards in an era of mass production, this 1990 Topps USA George Bush is a "must have" for the advanced modern collector. Purportedly only 100 copies of this #USA1 card were produced and distributed (primarily to President Bush) at a Yale University gala. A handful of copies were also bequeathed to devoted Topps employees and associates, along with reports that a few made their way into hobby packs. Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA, this appropriately graded specimen is one of only six copies judged by the third-party authenticator. The Class of ‘48 Ivy Leaguer is depicted as the Bulldogs’ first baseman on this handsome black-and-white picture. The future 41st President is framed by a well-defined perimeter. The reverse is clean and appropriately mentions Bush’s home as “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue” in Washington D.C. One of three at the grading level with only one better.
