Ask any Red Sox fan who grew up in the late 1960s through the 1970s, and they will tell you that their hero was Carl Yastrzemski. Yaz, who captured the American League Triple Crown in 1967, led Boston to a World Series that year, a season known in Beantown as the "Impossible Dream." Yastrzemski took home AL MVP honors thanks to his clutch bat, as the Sox captured the pennant by just a game over the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins. "Yaz hit 44 homers that year, and 43 of them meant something big for the team," recalled teammate George Scott. "It seemed like every time we needed a big play, the man stepped up and got it done." Offered here is an extremely rare 1967 Boston Red Sox Team Issue photo card of the Hall of Fame outfielder. Graded Gem Mint 10 by PSA, this oversized card is one of just seven examples of this beautiful color portrait submitted to the Newport Beach-based authentication company, and is the one-and-only specimen to achieve gem mint status. A number of those kids who spent summer evenings at Fenway four decades ago are today the grown-ups vying for top position in the highly competitive Carl Yastrzemski PSA Master Set Registry. This item is worth some big bonus points to Yaz set registrants, as there is nothing prettier to these collectors than earning those bold yellow stripes!
