    Description

    1948 Leaf Bob Feller #93 PSA NM-MT 8 - Pop Six, None Higher! The 1948 Leaf series help usher in a new era in baseball cards with a few tricks of the past. To entice sales, cards were skip-numbered and many cards were simply not sold in the same numbers as others making complete sets nothing short of an expensive and arduous task. A read of the list of names of the short prints one find a number of desirable rookies and established stars. Two names immediately grab your attention. Both are pitchers of the finest caliber. One is Negro/Major League legend Satchell Paige. An elder statesman in the clubhouse but a rookie as swell. The other is Hall of Famer Bob Feller. At the time, Feller was a 12-year baseball veteran and ex-military veteran with over 175 victories to his name. For those hearty souls wishing to finish the journey of completing this benchmark series, Feller ranks high among the subjects that are the last acquired. But, what a satisfying way to end what is a long collecting journey.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of six in NM-MT with none rated higher. While Feller's total pop number is higher than others, his popularity far exceeds the others which adds to the already alarming lack of availability. Once this card finds a home, it will stay there for some time. The offered card is rock solid example if there ever was one. The portrait of a smiling Feller rests a sliver to the right and low of center. Being mildly affected by sheet transfer is the lone fault if you can call it that. Surfaces are free of any dings, bumps, non-factory mishaps, etc. His portrait is inviting and appealing thanks to tight color registration. An unquestionably scarce card where the supply will never satisfy the demand.
