What can be said about the Steve Largent rookie card that hasn't already been said?  In Love of the Game Auctions, the 1977 Largent rookie has been elevated to Don Mossi-like status, almost a cult card, due largely to one single collector who has the largest collection of Steve Largent rookie cards one could imagine.  Suffice to say that there's a reason why more than 1,000 1977 Topps Largent cards have been graded PSA 8.  A single collector, a minor celebrity who chooses to remain nameless due to a desire to avoid excessive fan mail and autograph requests, is consistently the butt of our inside jokes.

But in this case, the card is not your ordinary Largent rookie.  It is from the considerably more scarce 1977 Topps Mexican issue, a 528-card parallel set issued by Topps with all the text appearing in Spanish.  Unlike the traditional Topps issue, with more than a thousand NM-MT examples, only eight Largents from the Mexican issue have graded NM-MT 8, with one additional 8.5, and one grading MINT 9.  This is truly a scarce card in any grade, most definitely not an inside joke.  This is a scarce, desirable, high-grade rookie card of a key Hall of Famer from a highly coveted issue.
