    Description

    1948 Leaf Ralph Kiner #91 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Five, None Higher! He was the most feared slugger in the National League, and he's got the stats to prove it. Not only did the superstar Pirates slugger best all Senior Circuit batsmen with forty home runs (his third of seven consecutive seasons atop that ranking), his .533 slugging percentage was down from the previous season only for Kiner to come back and lead the league in slugging two of the next three seasons. When he tipped his cap to the last fans to see him play in 1955, Kiner had amassed 369 round-trippers, almost 1,500 hits and racked up over 1,000 RBIs.

    Nothing beats the thrill of holding in your hand a card that has survived without a hint of ever being touched by another human hand. In reality thought, that sums up this card. Time to let the HoF rookie collector battle it out over this beauty. Each corner comes to a defined 90-degree angle. Horizontal centering is a sliver away from perfection. Surfaces are unbelievably clean without a blemish, stain or even stray speck of ink. Print registration is tight leaving a striking portrait aided by deep, rich hues mocking the fact it was seventy-years ago when they were put onto card stock. Graded PSA Mint 9. One of a handful of examples graded MINT with none rated higher.
