Offered here is a stunning card from one of the great American League sluggers of the era, the legendary Rocky Colavito pictured in this PSA 8.5 Near-Mint to Mint-Plus masterpiece. Though his numbers came up just short of Cooperstown-worthy, Rocco was a beloved figure in Cleveland on par with many of his contemporaries who ended up there. This popular pasteboard marked his return to Cleveland where he had once been the most revered figure on the ball club before being rudely traded to the Tigers following his 1959 season, which was highlighted by a four home-run game and winning the American League Home Run title. Indians’ GM Frank Lane fancied himself the master trader and so embraced the notion of trading the home run king for the batting champion from that season – the Tigers’ Harvey Kuenn – but a generation of Indians fans probably would take issue with that idea. Still.
