Description

    1949 Bowman Duke Snider #226 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop Three, None Higher. To the chagrin of hobbyists who concentrate on "Brooklyn Bums" players in their collections, Snider's debut piece emerged in the '49 Bowman 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 in fact one of the best Snider rookies in an SGC holder. Among a total of 163 counterparts graded by SGC, none has been graded higher and this is one of just a trio in 96 Mint 9. With perfectly calibrated centering as just one highlight, the card also features apparently never-touched and factory-fresh sides, peerless resolution in its image, and a generally fault-free aesthetic. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $6,000 - up.
