Description

    1948 Bowman George Mikan #69 SGC 88 NM/MT 8. Graded 88 NM/MT 8 by SGC, only two examples have survived in nicer condition. A new chapter for the role of the center was penned by this 6' 10" Hall of Fame legend. There isn't a big man currently in the NBA who doesn't owe Mikan a debt of gratitude. His style and presence on the court whether he was taking a shot over the heads of his opponents, going for a rebound or blocking a shot, Mikan changed the game and at the same time the popularity of the sport. Even this high quality square of cardboard seems unfit to pay homage to the first great center of the modern era. It is fitting that his rookie card appearance comes within the first great basketball issue of the modern era of trading cards. Perfect color, precision centering and tight registration (a rare treat for this set) are paired with two blazing mint corners and two with the slightest suggestions of wear. The boldly printed two-color reverse is free of blemishes and unsightly stock imperfections, another rare treat for the issue.
