    Let Stan "The Man" Musial Elevate Your Set to Elite Status!

    1948 Leaf Stan Musial #4 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Three, None Higher! With the best Major League talent answering Uncle Sam's call during the Second World War, and the tightening of domestic purse strings required in funding the military, production of baseball cards was largely back-burnered in the early to mid-1940's. But it would return with a vengeance in the later years of the decade, bringing new and exciting designs to a hobby on the brink of the explosion that the Topps company would soon provide.

    Presented is an elite example of the decade's most celebrated breed, a set that borrows from the bold and daring aesthetics of period propaganda posters, anchored by the essential rookie cards of Jackie Robinson and Stan "The Man" Musial. While the navigation of eight decades without a single condition misstep is improbable enough, this was a set plagued by poor registering and awkward factory cuts, but here we find the image crisply rendered. Surfaces are clean, corners are sharp. An investment-grade specimen for the uncompromising collector.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. One of only three in MINT with none rated higher. We could go into a lengthy dissertation on the seemingly unending qualities of this card when we can easily and simply say, "remarkable" and highly suggest one spends their time enjoying the online images. Heritage auctioned one of the other two example graded Mint in February 2018 for $312,000.00
