Description

    1948 Bowman Ernie Calverley #1 PSA Mint 9 - Pop Three, None Higher! This is the kind of card where just the facts says it all. Fact #1 - It is the #1 card from the first basketball card series of the modern era. Fact #2 - It has been graded Mint 9 by PSA! Fact #3 - Not a single example has graded higher. Fact #4 - Of the close to 7,000 cards from this series PSA has judged, only 2.4% have managed to survive at the mint level. Fact #5 - That is hardly enough to satisfy the condition conscious basketball specialist. By default this is the rookie card of Ernie Calverley, Forward for the Providence Steamrollers and this is one of his finest rookie cards in existence. Last fact - It is such an amazing-looking card that one can only marvel at how it has survived with barely any signs of ever having been held in human hands. A crowning addition for the finest basketball collection.
