    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Jackie Robinson #79 SGC NM+ 7.5. The chicanery inherent in its customary "skip-numbering" ploy aside, Chicago's Leaf Gum Company gave its customers the best-of-the-best in player selection for its baseball series of 1948-49. Well-known diamond personages abound in the issue - which harbors such universally revered heroes as Joe DiMaggio, Stan Musial and Ted Williams, for example, along with retrospectives of Ruth and Wagner - and, fittingly, Leaf made room for an especially important entry - the Brooklyn Dodgers' young infielder named Jackie Robinson.

    Graded SGC NM+ 7.5. Quality firmly places this card within the elite range but to ignore pure aesthetics - the hues, centering, surfaces and corners - all deliver a fantastic presentation many would say exceeds the technical assessment. Finally, the piece boasts absolutely precise color alignment, a key characteristic from this notoriously quality-challenged production. Centering is a perfect as one can expect. Corners are all "minty" to mint. Some may find this card a little under graded.
