Graded NM 7 by PSA. Extremely attractive high-grade example of one of Ted Williams' most striking and popular cards. 1948-1949 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 1948-1949 Leafs are one of the most difficult of all issues to collect in high grade. The offered card displays a perfectly crisp image, with flawless registration, centering only slightly toward the left, and four strong corners showing only minor wear at the tips. Clean reverse. This is a superb high-grade example of one of Williams' most classic cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000+.
