Presented is a stunning and ultra high-grade 49-card complete set of 1948 Leaf Boxing cards, entirely graded and encapsulated by PSA. The 1948 Leaf series is one of the most popular boxing sets ever issued. This set includes all the major boxing greats up to that time, and has always been a favorite with collectors. This set currently ranks third on the PSA Set Registry with an overall GPA of 7.71. Missing only the extremely rare Graziano card for completion of the master set (almost all collectors consider the set complete without this card). The set consists of two NM-MT+ 8.5s, thirty-six NM-MT 8s, nine NM 7s, and two EX-MT 6s. PSA Grading Composite: Two NM-MT+ 8.5: #57 and 73 Tunney. Thirty-six NM-MT 8: #3, 9 Jeffries, 13, 15, 17 Johnson, 18, 25 Attell, 24, 27, 29, 33, 35, 36, 38 Sharkey, 42, 44, 47, 48 Louis, 51, 55 Corbett, 58, 60, 63 Fitzsimmons, 67, 69, 71, 74, 77, 78, 80, 88, 90, 93 Baer, 95, 98, and 101 Sullivan. Nine NM 7: #1 Dempsey, 2, 7, 8, 20, 32 Schmeling, 64 Robinson, 65, and 82. Two EX-MT 6: #19 and 102 LaMotta. All cards are bright, crisp, and clean, with several cards appearing to be conservatively graded under close review. This is a superb complete set, one of the finest ever assembled, of this very popular boxing-card series. It would be a worthy addition to even the most advanced collection! Total: 49 cards. Reserve $2,500. Estimate $5,000+.
