Graded EX 5 by PSA. Extremely attractive example of one of Ted Williams' most striking and popular cards. 1948 Leafs have always posed a problem for condition-conscious collectors. In addition to the many normal problems encountered with this issue (excessive toning, general wear from fragile paper stock, soft corners, centering issues, and print lines), collectors also have to deal with the wildly varying degrees of print quality that characterize the set. It is easy to see why 1948 Leafs are one of the most difficult of all issues to collect in high grade. The offered card displays a perfectly crisp image, with slightly off-register color alignment, perfect centering, and light corner wear (a bit more to the upper right). Clean reverse. This is a superb example of one of Williams' most classic cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
