1949 Leaf #138 Larry Doby Rookie Card - PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $1,541

Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extremely attractive high-grade example of this short-printed "Rare Leaf" rookie card featuring Hall of Famer Larry Doby. The 1949 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Doby is the most popular and significant of all his cards. It is also a genuine rarity, being one of the forty-nine scarce cards in the 1948-1949 Leaf Gum Co. set. The offered card is an exceptional example. The clean, off-white borders of this card frame a virtually flawless image that is centered to the left (approximately 30/70 L/R). The corners are sharp with a hint of light wear (slightly more so on the bottom left). The reverse is clean and free of staining and excess print. This is a very attractive high-grade example of Doby’s most classic card, worthy of the finest 1949 Leaf set and a key rarity for an advanced Hall of Famer rookie-card collection. SMR value for the assigned grade is $1,650. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+.
SOLD FOR $1,541
