    Description

    1948 Leaf Joe Louis #48, Signed. The most valuable card in boxing's most collectible trading card issue is made all the more inviting with the appearance of a 9/10 blue ballpoint ink autograph from the man described in the brief biography on verso as the "...greatest heavyweight of all time." The card itself shows mild toning and wear to three corners, but retains strong color and sharp registration that results in an impressive appearance. One of the very few trading cards of any sort we've seen with Louis' signature, and happily his most important one. Encapsulated by PSA/DNA for protection and unquestioned authenticity.
