Spectacular offering! On the market this month is a 1948 Bowman George Mikan rookie card of such exceptional quality that we feel 100% comfortable labeling it as one of the finest PSA 8s in existence. They simply don't come looking like this. This ultra condition sensitive high-number is seldom seen with such incredible centering with the offered copy being almost perfect (only a couple points off). What's even more impressive about this card is the MINT surfaces it possesses, boasting gorgeous color and clarity throughout. Free of excess print with virtually immaculate borders and blemish free edges around. The faintest of touches to all but the upper right corner is perhaps all that keeps from grading an '8.5'. George Mikan is arguably the most influential player in the history of the sport with many rules having to be changed based on the imbalance of his dominance. Mikan is known as the Father of the Big Men, renowned for his shot blocking, rebounding and determined drive through the lane. Being the most important card from Basketball's first great set, we feel this is a fine-art equivalent investment which is sure to bring a high ROI as the market matures. Ignore the past sale prices on this card as the offered PSA 8 is sure to bring a record setting price tag based on it's exceptional attributes. Comes with our recommendation.
