Critically Important Pre-War Investment Piece

Quickly recognized as one of the most iconic and hotly desired trading cards in the world, the 1948 Leaf Short Printed rookie of the legendary 'Satch' holds high regard among advanced investors. Exceptionally scarce in all grades, but particularly elusive in grades of VG or higher. The offered SGC 3 is a highly respectable example which possesses crease free card stock and wonderful print for the issue. The yellow background really pops and the corners are well formed for the grade assigned. Some rather typical toning on the front and a light wrinkle on the reverse which stems from the bottom edge keeps from grading higher. Can you imagine if Paige was given the opportunity to pitch in the Major Leagues during his prime. A market cornerstone which is difficult to improve upon in many ways and comes highly recommended. Please see the video highlight for more information on this premier investment piece. One of over 15,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 11th Auction of 2019.
