Graded EX/NM 80 by SGC. Very attractive high-grade example of this popular Hall of Famer's rookie card. This exceptionally crisp card has deep, rich colors, four corners with light even corner wear, and excellent registration (which can often be a problem with cards from this set). The centering is slightly tilted and to the left. Just as the cards in the 1948-49 Leaf baseball series are much rarer than Bowman and Topps cards from the late 1940s and early 1950s, Leaf Football cards are also rarer than almost all other postwar football issues. They are also very distinctive, with an unusual and very colorful design that has always been a favorite with collectors. A beautiful and high-grade example of one of the keys to the set, and one of Sammy Baugh's most desirable cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500+.
