Bench Rookie. Similar qualities as Ryan with the additional benefit of being pretty much dead centered. Plus it's a solid 88. Two mint corners, two NM++. $275.$250.

Wow that Bench rookie is awesome. I don't collect baseball cards anymore but if I did I would buy that in a heartbeat! It is hard to find centered with no specs or fish eyes. Good luck with the sale.

Bench on the left, Ryan on the right. The print is not out of focus or fuzzy; it's the scanner I have (or lack of knowledge on how to account for the offset from the printer bed to the recessed card inside the holder).

I assume these are PSA prices? Depending on the player and card, SGC sells for less...

The first group is PSA; the last one is SGC. Not that much difference in star cards. Statistically speaking, the SGC sale is within one standard deviation of the mean of the PSA cards, at the 68% confidence level. But I digress.

If anyone wanted to cross it, that's their prerogative. I graded the top 15 stars in my 1968 set using SGC. The set has been previously sold; however, I kept the two rookies. Until now.

Buy the card, not the holder.
