Graded NM 7 by PSA. Of the 302 examples graded by PSA to date, only five have been graded higher. Extraordinary high-grade example of Hall of Famer Sid Luckman's rookie card from the 1948 Leaf football series, one of the most popular and classic of all football-card sets. In addition to being Luckman's rookie card this card is also a true condition rarity in the set. Being the No. 1 card in the set, this card naturally gravitated to the top of the stack, usually exposing it to extra wear and handling, and thus making high-grade examples far more difficult to find than most other 1948 Leaf football cards. Bright and crisp, with four sharp corners, bold colors, flawless registration, and centered slightly to the bottom. The reverse has bold black print. This would be a tremendous upgrade or addition to any 1948 Leaf set or Hall of Fame rookie collection. Reserve $2,000. Estimate $4,000+.
