1970 Kellogg's Baseball PSA Part Two
Here are a few more things that I found with the 1970 Kellogg's baseball card set.
Why is there such an interest in Carlos May's card? Only 18 of them have been graded as 10s. That's 8 percent of the cards submitted (225).
I haven't submitted any cards to PSA but I do own a few from different purchases. The May above isn't one of them.
There are actually two cards that have less 10s than May. One is the Bob Gibson error (IP is blank) which has only two 10s. The other is Rick Reichardt whose card has only been graded as a 10 16 times (8.4% of 190 submissions).
Only two other cards in the set have a lower percentage of 10s than May and Reichardt. Roberto Clemente and Pete Rose fall into this category because their cards are worth grading even if they might not be possible 10s.
Jimmy Wynn (26.2%) and Mickey Lolich (27.9%) are the only cards that graded as a 10 more than 25% of the time. Lolich remains the leader in the PSA 10 category with 110 so far.
