1948-1949 Leaf Baseball PSA-Graded Collection Including Ruth and Robinson (15)

Starting Bid - $2,500.00, Sold For - $9,987.50

Exceptionally crisp high-grade collection of fifteen different 1948 Leaf baseball, including Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio, and Jackie Robinson, among other key stars. Each of the fifteen cards has a pack-fresh appearance with razor sharp corners, and flawless registration. Purchased by our consignor some fifteen years ago and consigned to this auction as raw cards, we were so impressed with the condition of this group that we submitted every single card in the collection to PSA for grading. The fifteen PSA graded cards include six PSA NM 7s, six EX-MT 6s, and three EX 5s. The PSA grades are as follows: Six NM 7: #32 Spahn RC (HOF), 38 Kluszewski RC, 39 Blackwell RC, 46 Mize (HOF), 76 Williams (HOF), and 91 Kiner RC (HOF). Six EX-MT 6: #3 Ruth (HOF), 11 Rizzuto RC (HOF), 59 Appling (HOF), 79 Robinson RC (HOF), 83 Doerr (HOF), and 106 Boudreau (HOF). Three EX 5: #1 DiMaggio (HOF), 4 Musial RC (HOF), and 70 Wagner (HOF). This is a tremendous high-grade selection comprised exclusively of key cards, which stands on its own as a stunning high-quality representation of the set, or could serve as a significant foundation for the assembly of a world-class set. The SMR value for this group is $6,490. Total 15 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+. SOLD FOR $9,987.50
