Description

    1948 Leaf Ted Williams #76 PSA Mint 9 - None Higher. The 1948-49 Leaf set presents more like Russian propaganda posters than your typical baseball card of the era. The set is now famous for the simple, yet bold and thoroughly modern design. It come as no surprise that it has made it to the top of the "All-Time Favorite" chart among collectors. When you consider that only slightly in excess of 21,000 cards of this issue have passed through PSA's grading service, whereas the first issue of Topps just four years later has seen over ten times that amount slabbed, it becomes clear just how much more elusive, particularly in high grade, this beautiful set is.

    Ted Williams entered the Majors intent upon a future in which baseball fans would point at him and whisper, "There goes the greatest hitter that ever lived." Twenty-one years later, he would retire with that wish fulfilled. It's a fact that makes the presented cardboard commemorative one of the more essential trading cards in the hobby, deriving from the most important issues released during the modern era.

    Graded PSA Mint 9. Only a privileged half-dozen other hobbyists can lay claim to owning this classic card at this, the highest grade level on record for card #76 and one of a very small, and we mean less than one-percent small, of the overall PSA Leaf population.
