Description

    1949 Bowman Roy Campanella #84 SGC 96 Mint 9 - None Higher! A half dozen are known at this grade level with none grading higher. The rookie card of three-time National League MVP Roy Campanella constitutes the heart of a Brooklyn Dodgers collection. An accomplished Negro Leaguer who made the transition to the majors at the age of 27, the Hall of Fame catcher was instrumental in the franchise's "glory years" between 1949 and 1956. The legendary player seemed unstoppable, and only an off-the-field tragedy was able to put a halt to the building of his almost superhuman résumé of baseball accomplishment. Graded SGC 96 Mint 9, this card has outstanding corners and surfaces and close to perfect centering. Factory-fresh "rough cuts" adorning a trio of borders affording it that quintessential pack-fresh appeal.

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