Description

    1948 Leaf Satchel Paige #8 SGC 40 VG 3. 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 didn't appear during the second of Leaf's two seasons of issue, one could rightfully consider this Paige's one and only "true" rookie. Satchel cracks a smile above the caption of his rarely spoken given name. His chuckle, a sign as if he's aware just how tough acquiring this short-print scarcity truly is. Graded SGC 40 VG 3. There are no creases or wrinkling. Registration is slightly off but leaves an appealing portrait. One of the hardest to find and most desired cards of the modern era.
