Graded EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA. Outstanding high-grade example of Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh’s 1948 Leaf rookie card (red jersey version). This exceptionally crisp card has deep, rich colors, four square corners, excellent centering, and near-perfect registration. Perfectly crisp and clean front and back. An unobtrusive hairline print defect at the bottom right portion of the image is mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy. 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 almost all other postwar football issues. They are also very distinctive, with an unusual and very colorful design that has always been a favorite with collectors. A beautiful and extremely high grade example of one of the keys to the set, and one of Sammy Baugh's most desirable cards. Reserve $400. Estimate $1,000+.
