Description

    1949 Bowman Duke Snider #226 SGC 92 NM/MT+ 8.5 - Pop One, Two Higher! Offered is the rookie card of "The Duke of Flatbush," a star outfielder for the beloved Brooklyn Dodgers teams of the 1950's and one of the franchise's most popular figures. A member of the famed "Boys of Summer," Snider was instrumental in the 1955 club's long-awaited World Series victory, and he narrowly missed capturing that year's National League MVP honors. Snider's debut piece emerged in the '49 Bowman issue's scarcer series of "High Numbers" as well as facing the additional obstacle of the time's soft and unforgiving cardstock plus difficulties with respect to print quality. Here, though, one of the best-of-the-best Snider rookies imaginable is presented. This spectacular relic sits in SGC's census report sharing its tier with no others. Among a total of 98 counterparts holdered by that company, only a pair has been graded higher. Just one highlight is the card's apparently never-touched and factory-fresh "rough cuts" at the sides, peerless resolution in its image, and a generally fault-free aesthetic.
