    Description

    1952 Topps Jackie Robinson #312 SGC NM 7. After the most profound heartbreak was delivered by Bobby Thomson's bat to bring a sudden and shocking end to the Brooklyn Dodgers' 1951 season, the Bums returned with a vengeance in 1952, leaving their hated National League rivals four and a half games in their wake by the time the regular season was done. It would prove to be Jackie's last campaign as the Dodgers' starting second baseman, and his final appearance in the top ten for National League MVP balloting, but he'd lead the Senior Circuit with a .440 on-base percentage and steal twenty-four bases in thirty-one attempts.

    This card represents Robinson's appearance in the most celebrated bubble gum set in history. Let's remember that this is one of the rare "third series" cards of the 1952 Topps set--a next-door neighbor to Mantle's legendary #311--thus considerably more rare than the bulk of the issue. As the legend goes, most of the cards from this final series were produced too late to make it to market during the baseball season, relegated first to a dusty existence in warehouse storage before burial at sea.

    Graded SGC NM 7. It's a fine Near Mint specimen, one of eight at the grade level with just twenty superior.
