    Description

    1948-49 Leaf Satchel Paige SP #8 SGC 30 Good 2. Mr. Paige was forty-two years old when this card appeared and yes, it is his 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. A nice card for a "30 Good 2" card, explained by the combination of centering, light rounding of corners and a few spider-web wrinkling. One of the hardest and most desired cards of the modern era.
