    Description

    1948 Leaf Satchel Paige SP #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, the combination of light rounding of corner tips, toning and one hard to find spot scuff on the reverse explains the assessment. One of the hardest to find and most desired cards of the modern era.

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