    Description

    1948 Leaf Hal Newhouser #98 PSA NM-MT 8 - None Higher! To the Detroit fan, Hal Newhouser is famous for being a two-time American League MVP and two-time AL Pitcher of the Year. To card collectors, his 1948 Leaf card #98 is famous for being a short-print subject and so very hard to find at all, let alone at the higher grade levels. Offered is a very strong and colorful example with pleasing ink quality, tight registration (no floating pupils here) and four flat out Mint or very "minty" corners. In the series, Newhouser is a tough short print subject and is often one of the last to be crossed off want lists.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. One of just six at the NM-MT level with none rated higher. When you first see this card your first question is why only NM-MT? Only under magnification does one see hints of wear at two corner tips. The top two corners are as one sees on your typical Mint card. Surfaces are very clean and print ghosting which seem to be attracted to that glowing yellow are at an exceptionally bare minimum. A world class card meant for the finest Leaf collection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
