1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson PSA-Graded Collection (6)

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $4,350.00

Outstanding collection of six cards from the 1947 Bond Bread set, one of the most historically significant baseball card sets ever issued. This set was issued in 1947 to commemorate Robinson's historic shattering of the color barrier. Each card in the set features Jackie Robinson. The cards were regionally distributed only in the New York area, and were primarily available in black neighborhoods. One card was packaged with each loaf of Bond Bread. This collection of six cards (of the thirteen cards which comprise the set) represents a very substantial foundation upon which to build a complete set. Only a few complete sets of this extremely rare issue have ever been assembled. All six cards have been encapsulated and graded by PSA: #1 awaiting pitch (PSA EX 5), 2 batting follow-through, white sleeves (PSA EX 5), 4 leaping, scoreboard in background (PSA EX 5), 6 portrait, facsimile autograph (PSA EX-MT 6), 10 sliding (PSA VG 3), 12 stretching for throw, no ball visible (PSA NM 7). Card numbers are from the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. Total 6 cards. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$2,000. SOLD FOR $4,350.00
