PWCC Certified - Eye Appeal Rating: Top 30%

World class offering! It's our opinion that the '48 Leaf Jackie Robinson is the single most important trading card produced during the 1940s and overall is positioned for a dramatic value increase. No athlete in American sporting history is more important than the man who took the first step across baseballs' shameful color line. Though many individuals had greater careers than Jackie, no one can challenge the impact this man had on the game as well as his community. Those who've studied the '48 Leaf Jackie Robinson rookie know quickly how this example is a world apart from the rest. Easily ranking among the finest copies we've had the pleasure of brokering in our long tenure and conservatively ranking within the top 30% of our quality spectrum. This card lights up the room with its glowing lemon-yellow background and virtually 50-50 centering. The borders are virtually immaculate, the periphery is blemish free and the card stock is NM-MT. Furthermore, three corners are pin-point sharp while the bottom right has a microscopic touch present at the extreme point. An exceedingly light horizontal print roller mark through Jackie's hat is all that keeps from grading higher. In conclusion, this is simply a world class example of a highly significant production, both in the world in trading cards and our country's culture and history. Please see the video highlight for further information on this masterpiece. One of over 16,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 10th Auction of 2019.
