    Signed 1949 Bowman Satchell Paige #224 SGC Authentic. Satchell Paige needs little accolades here. Every baseball fan knows he was a superstar of both the Negro League and the newly integrated Major Leagues. Paige has had his experience and contributions to the game well documented for future generations of baseball fans to appreciate and learn from. Very few late-1940's baseball cards are as desired as is card #224 from Bowman's 1949 release which happens to be one of the few cards that feature the legendary pitcher. With his Leaf cards so extremely hard to find, this was probably the first card of Paige most collectors were able to add to their holdings and another would not become available until the 1953 Topps series.

    But this is not just any example of this classic card. In a deep blank-ink we see "Satchell Paige" scribed on the front in the hand of the man himself. Over the years, Heritage has auctioned hundreds of signed baseballs, photos, etc. by Paige but we have had the opportunity to offer just one vintage trading card! The card itself is in good condition with very clean surfaces. The result is great contrast between the classic portrait and the vivid ball-point pen signature that we feel rates a solid "8" on a scale of "10." This is a fantastic item for the Paige specialist.
