    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Leroy Paige SP #8 SGC 50 VG/EX 4. So what if he was forty-two years old at the time? It's still a rookie card! In fact, considering that his first Bowman card appeared during the second of Leaf's two seasons of issue, one could rightfully consider this Paige's "true" rookie. Satchel cracks a smile above the caption of his rarely spoken given name, as if he's aware just how tough this short-print beauty is. Sports Market Report figures find him more than quadrupling the value of his nearest competitor in this stylish post-war issue. A solid and attractive example of what may well be the toughest debut card of the era.
