    1949 Bowman Robin Roberts #46 PSA Gem Mint 10 - The Ultimate PSA Example!
    If you were a Phillies fan in the 1950's there was one thing you could count on. HoFer Robin Roberts on the mound. Roberts debuted in 1948 and quickly became the promising child of the newly dubbed "Whiz Kids" who helped get the Phillies to their first pennant since 1915. The '50's were good for Roberts who won between 20 and 28 games for each year from 1950 to 1955. One stretch saw him complete 28 consecutive games. He was The Sporting News Player of the Year honoree in 1952. Another fun fact - Roberts has the distinction of being the only pitcher to beat the "Braves" in three different cities - Boston, Milwaukee, and Atlanta.

    The 1949 Bowman issue is a hobby classic featuring an enticing gallery of key appearances including George Kell (Rookie), Early Wynn (Rookie), Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella (Rookie), Bob Lemon (Rookie), Satchell Paige, Duke Snider (Rookie) and fellow whiz Kid Richie Ashburn (Rookie). Finding a Gem Mint example is no task for the faint of heart as currently there are just 42 of the over 52,000 cards reviewed by PSA have a "Gem Mint" label. That ranks this card among the top one-tenth of one-percent range!

    Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. A "Pop One-of-One" title holder with no chance of another rating any higher. In the Heritage signature auction held in May of 2017 we sold a 1949 Bowman Robin Roberts card graded PSA Mint 9 with "Only One Higher" mentioned in the title. Well, here is that "one higher" we referred to. This is a must have card for the most passionate Robin Roberts or '49 Bowman aficionado.
