1949 Leaf Football High-Grade SGC Collection (11)
Starting Bid - $200.00 , Sold For - $1,880.00
Collection of eleven very crisp, high-grade 1949 Leaf football cards, each graded and encapsulated by SGC: One NM/MT+ 92: #70 Siegert. Two NM/MT 88: #31 Coulter and 118 Davis. One NM+ 86: #65 Nussbaumer. Seven NM 84: #1 Hendren, 9 Angsman, 13 Thompson, 23 LaForce, 35 Wistert, 81 Moss, and 126 Rhodemyre. Just as the cards in the 1948-1949 Leaf baseball series are much rarer than Bowman and Topps cards from the late 1940s and early 1950s, Leaf Football cards are also rarer than most other postwar football issues. They are also very distinctive, with an unusual and very colorful design that has always made these a favorite with collectors. This is an impressive high-grade collection of this difficult 1940s football card issue, which could provide upgrades, serve as a foundation collection, or contribute to the assembly of an extremely high quality complete set. Total 11 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$800. SOLD FOR $1,880.00
