1949 Bowman Roy Campanella #84 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5. Just a half dozen are known at this grade level with only a handful higher. The rookie card of three-time National League MVP Roy Campanella constitutes the heart of a Brooklyn Dodgers collection. An accomplished Negro Leaguer who made the transition to the majors at the age of 27, the Hall of Fame catcher was instrumental in the franchise's "glory years" between 1949 and 1956. The legendary player seemed unstoppable, and only an off-the-field tragedy was able to put a halt to the building of his almost superhuman résumé of baseball accomplishment. This card has outstanding color and precision centering. Factory-fresh "rough cuts" adorning the right and left sides afford that quintessential pack-fresh appeal.
