    Description

    1949 Bowman Satchell Paige #224 PSA NM-MT 8. The legend of Satchel Paige lives on. He was a showman with flair; a pitcher of enormous skill with the arm of a superhero. He had an unmatched repertoire of pitches. The exact amount of wins or games he pitched in has been lost to time, but it is probable that he appeared in more games as a pitcher than any other hurler in history. He also entered our culture as a wordsmith and a "one of a kind" character, much in the same vein as Yogi Berra. Paige's cards remain some of the most popular and sought-after in the hobby. This offering is no exception.

    From the eerily somber, yet intriguing, 1949 Bowman set, comes this card of Leroy Paige. It has been graded an outstanding PSA NM-MT 8. This example would be a magnificent addition to any collection, a true centerpiece.

    Auction Type
    Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
