Description

    1948 Leaf Ted Williams #78 PSA Mint 9 Looking more like Russian propaganda posters than the typical baseball card of the era, the 1948 Leaf set's bold, simple, and yet thoroughly modern design has made it a top favorite among collectors. When you consider that only slightly in excess of 6,000 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 scarce this beautiful set is. This astounding representation of the great Ted Williams' number 76 card takes us one step further toward the pinnacle of the elite, ranking as one of only seven such cards to rest below a Mint 9 banner, with not a single card above. The surface is simply flawless, with full ink coverage of the bold blocks of color that often reveal a defect or two in other cards. Centering is masterful, and the corners strong as the day it rolled off the presses. The verso is equal to the face in quality. You can rest assured that the 1948 Leaf Williams that tops this one simply does not exist.

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