    Description

    1948 Leaf Boxers Complete Set (49) - #3 on the SGC Set Registry. Every card has been graded by SGC. Set GPA: 63.2. Set Ranking: 3rd Place. When Leaf and Bowman opened up the sports card market in 1948, the lone sport which was not so successful was boxing. This 49-card endeavor made a grand attempt by including both contemporary pugilists as well as fighting titans long retired, but it seems it just didn't prove successful enough to warrant annual productions. Today, they are highly prized and are just as tough to find in high grade as the football and baseball counterparts. Includes: Graded - SGC 88 NM/MT 8: 1 card, #74; SGC 86 NM+ 7.5: 3 cards w/#'s 51, 69 and 77; SGC 84 NM 7: 6 cards w/#'s 55 Corbett, 63 Fitzsimmons, 67, 71, 73 Tunney and 80; SGC 80 EX/NM 6: 5 cards w/#s 32 Schmeling, 35, 44, 60 and 95; SGC 70 EX+ 5.5: 7 cards w/#'s 24, 25 Attell, 27, 42, 47, 78 and 98; SGC 60 EX 5: 11 cards w/#s 8, 13, 17 Johnson, 18, 20, 29, 58, 64 Robinson, 65, 82 and 90; SGC 50 VG/EX 4: 9 cards w/#'s 1 Dempsy, 2, 7, 9 Jeffries, 33, 36, 48 Louis, 57 and 88; SGC 40 VG 3: 4 cards w/#s 19, 38, 101 Sullivan and 102 La Motta; SGC 30 GD 2: 2 cards w/#'s 3 and 15; SGC Authentic: 1 card, #93.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
