Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. High-grade example of Duke Snider from the 1950 Drake's Cookies issue. Because of the black flush-to-the-border design and how they were issued (regionally, one card per box, and with cookies to kids), Drake's has always been a very condition-sensitive issue. One of only two examples graded at this level by PSA with just one higher. Crisp and clean, with four sharp corners showing only a touch of wear at the tip of the upper right. Centering slightly toward the left, with a bit of chipping along the edges. In our opinion, this example displays a slight trim to all edges, though someone else might have a different opinion. This is a very attractive high-grade example of one of Snider’s rarest and most desirable cards. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
