This week, we’re offering a PSA 8 1960 Topps Hockey Rookie card of Hall of Famer Stan Mikita with incredible centering. After three seasons with the St. Catharine's Teepees of the Ontario Hockey Association, Stan Mikita was promoted to the Chicago Black Hawks in 1959.

In 1961, the Hawks won the Stanley Cup and Mikita led the league in goals during the playoffs, scoring a total of six. 

The 1962 season was his breakout year. Stan became a star as center of the famed "Scooter Line." He became one of the most feared centers of the 1960s. With superstar teammate Bobby Hull, the Black Hawks had the most powerful offense of the decade, often leading the league in goals scored.

Combining skilled defense and a reputation as one of the game's best faceoff men, Mikita was also an offensive force and led the league in scoring four times in the decade, tying Bobby Hull's single-season scoring mark in 1966-67 with 97 points. Mikita was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1983.
