    Description

    1949 Bowman Satchell Paige #224 SGC EX 5. By the time Leroy Paige finally made the Big Leagues, he was already a legend, having won numerous games and accolades for over a decade with the Negro Leagues and barnstorming across the country. Although no one was quite sure of his exact age, it was clear that he was older than the average rookie. Offered here is his card from the 1949 Bowman set, #224. It has been graded SGC EX 5, although it looks better than its grade. Admirable centering and corners with very nice surfaces. A nice and clean example of this card of this great hurler.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $4,000 - up.

    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.
