    A Contender for The Heavyweight Card Hall of Fame!

    1948 Leaf Warren Spahn #32 PSA Gem Mint 10 - The Ultimate PSA Example, Pop One! He's the number six man on the career wins ladder, and figures to remain as such since Roger Clemens failed to top him. Spahn's figure of 363 victories has never been bested in the Live Ball era, and as of today there is not a pitcher within thirty games of the southpaw Braves ace who didn't register at least the vast majority of his wins prior to 1920. This fact becomes all the more remarkable when considering that Spahn left for World War II combat, experiencing the fiercest of fighting at the Battle of the Bulge, after appearing in only four games in 1942. He wouldn't post his first career victory until 1946, when he was twenty-five years old. Spahn not only had longevity, but tremendous quality in that longevity. Stan Musial once joked that Spahn would never make it into the Hall of Fame. "He'll never stop pitching," he explained.

    It surprise you that a careful layout of just five colors can command your attention as though it was some gorgeously rendered Renaissance masterpiece. There is not a single incident of damage, be it staining, scuffing, not even hints of fuzziness at the corners. In short, it remains exactly as it looked when it was pulled from a pack fifty years ago.
    Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. Simply put - None finer on earth. Check the PSA population report and you'll find that this statement is not just opinion, but a verifiable fact. This pack-fresh marvel offers not a single opportunity to cast stones. Each border mirrors its opposite side down to the fraction of a millimeter, and each corner is a razor-sharp right angle. A glossy, perfectly registered front flips to a verso free of even the suggestion of the gum and wax stains that so often spoil the fun. The card is pure perfection, never equaled and impossible to surpass. Population one! This absolutely magnificent card that stands as the finest Spahn Leaf ever to reach the auction block, meriting an unbeatable Gem Mint rating from the knowledgeable staff of PSA graders.
