    1948 Bowman Yogi Berra Rookie #6 SGC Gem Mint 10 - The Ultimate SGC-Graded Example! Sabermetrics calculates him to be the greatest catcher of all time, and his thirteen World Championship rings, including a record ten as a player, commemorate a record as untouchable as any in the sport. Berra was notorious for being one of the toughest outs in the Major Leagues when at the plate, five times recording more home runs than strikeouts in a season. But in his defensive role Berra was arguably even better, topping the Junior Circuit eight times in putouts as catcher, three times in assists, and once in fielding percentage.

    The presented card finds the beloved backstop in the earliest days of his Hall of Fame career, just on the brink of a five-season reign of World Championship dominance in the Bronx. The 1948 Bowman set was significant in that it was the first national baseball set to be issued since the 1939 Play Ball issue. It consists of only 48 cards, with a B&W front photo of the player. The rear has the card number and player's name in a headline, then personal vitals, a short bio, and an ad for Blony Bubble Gum. Without a doubt this is an extreme condition rarity. Graded SGC Gem Mint 10! The stand-alone Gem Mint 10 in an SGC holder!
