    Description

    1951 Bowman Whitey Ford #1 PSA NM-MT 8. As a rookie in 1950, Ford won his first nine decisions, giving New York fans a glimpse of his talents. He was voted Rookie of The Year by the Sporting News, but service to his country became priority with Ford serving in the Korean War in 1951 and 1952. He returned in 1953 and served in Yankee pinstripes until his retirement in 1967. He '50 exploits didn't go unnoticed by Bowman who choose to feature the young lefty to start their 1951 edition.

    As all collectors come to realize at some point, the #1 card is by far the most condition-sensitive entry, equaled only by the card that concludes any given promotion. This card seems to have managed to avoid being handled by human hands young or old. Graded PSA NM-MT 8.
