Although not yet listed on the Sandy Koufax Master Set Registry checklist, the offered "Dodger Stadium at Night" scene from the nostalgic 1962-65 LA Dodgers postcard series clearly features the celebrated lefty on the mound, and so we have no doubt that this item will eventually be counted among the approximately 150 items comprising the Koufax Master Set. The offered card is the first example to ever grade PSA 10 Gem Mint, and in time we believe it may turn out to be the only one ever. The Gem Mint evaluation here is surprising because of the mostly black full bleed printed edges on front. Not only are these borderless edges susceptible to showing even the lightest nicks and other traces of handling, but the glossy front surface is a virtual magnet for scratches and other indentations. This item is one of at least a dozen total items we've encountered over the years which we believe belongs on the Sandy Koufax Master Set Registry checklist but has yet to be recognized. Coupled with the introduction of PSA's new "jumbo" holder, there are bound to be more than a few additions to the checklist in the coming months and years, so get a strategic leg up on the competition with a winning bid on this condition sensitive postcard. With the next best copy rated three full numerical grades below it, the potential implications for the Master Set Registry leader board are obvious.
