Graded EX+ 70 by SGC (submitted by REA). Presented is a very attractive mid-grade example of this classic rookie card of Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson. The 1948-1949 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Robinson is one of the most popular, striking, and classic of all Jackie Robinson cards. The offered example displays a perfectly crisp image with flawless registration, four square corners with light touches of wear, and centered very slightly to the bottom. The reverse is boldly printed. This is an exceptionally attractive example of one of the icons of postwar Hall of Fame card collecting, and in the eyes of many, Jackie Robinson's single most desirable baseball card. Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000+.
