    Description

    1949 Bowman Duke Snider #226 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Duke "The Duke of Flatbush" Snider was not just a star outfielder for the revered Brooklyn Dodgers teams of the 1950's. He was one of the franchise's most beloved figures, a treasured member of the famed "Boys of Summer," and instrumental in the 1955 club's long-awaited World Series victory. His first card appearances is this card, #226 from the Bowman baseball edition from 1949. To the chagrin of hobbyists who concentrate on "Brooklyn Bums" players in their collections, Snider's debut piece emerged among the issue's scarcer series of "High Numbers." The card faces the additional obstacle of the time's soft and unforgiving cardstock, as well as notorious difficulties with respect to print quality. Here, though, is one of the best-of-the-best Snider rookies submitted to SGC. This spectacular example has been graded SGC 88 NM/MT 8, sharing its tier with an even dozen others. Among a total of 97 counterparts holdered by SGC to date, only two has been graded higher. With close to perfectly calibrated centering as just one highlight, the card also features apparently never-touched and factory-fresh "rough cuts" at the sides, spot-on print resolution, and a generally fault-free visual appeal.
