    Description

    1939 Play Ball Moe Berg #103 SGC 96 Mint 9 - The Finest SGC Example! He was one of the most fascinating figures in baseball history despite his limited athletic talents. Berg was a Princeton-educated multi-linguist who joined legendary players like Ruth, Gehrig and Foxx on the 1934 Tour of Japan for the purpose of espionage on behalf of the OSS, the precursor to the modern-day Central Intelligence Agency. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9, this is the single highest graded SGC example! This phenomenal representation depicts the famous catcher and US secret agent. The card displays exceptional centering, ultra clean surfaces and four sharp corners that direct the eye inside the four frosty white borders. SGC has graded only 51 Play Ball cards from '39 "Mint" and none have earned a "98" rank.
