Description

    1950-51 Toleteros Joshua Gibson SGC 60 EX 5. One can only imagine the life Josh Gibson had in Puerto Rico with the magnitude of a heralded movie star compared to the life he was forced to live in the US, playing in a league designated for the "colored only." He had already established himself as the home run king in the US and continued to set records in the Puerto Rican Professional Baseball League system. When the Toleteros company decided to manufacturer a baseball card it is no surprise that Josh Gibson would have to be a part of it, even after he had been deceased for three years. He was idolized by fans in Puerto Rico and considered his play there as the high point of his career. This is the fourth highest grade found in a population report that has only eleven ever submitted. The image is clear and the centering close to perfect. Blank back reverse with no stains, writing or any other marks.
