    Description

    1949 Bowman Roy Campanella #84 PSA Mint 9. "He was always doing something to help you win a game, whether it was digging out a low pitch, throwing out a baserunner, or hitting a home run," explained Dodgers manager, Walt Alston, reporting the facts that earned Campy three National League MVP Awards during the first half of the 1950's. The humble backstop may not have garnered the attention that followed Jackie, Pee Wee and the Duke during that most glorious era of New York City baseball, but there was arguably no more essential component in the sustained success of those last Brooklyn Dodgers teams than Roy Campanella.

    We've always loved this issue for its bold, unadorned design, one of the very few sets in the entirety of The Standard Catalog to forgo text on the obverse. Diminutive in size but enormous in collecting intrigue, this particular specimen adds spectacular condition to the mix, dodging the issues with registration and wax staining common to the era. Only two examples have ever graded higher. Graded PSA Mint 9.
