1951 Bowman #1 Whitey Ford Rookie - PSA NM-MT 8
Starting Bid - $1,500, Sold For - $8,813
Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Only three examples have ever been graded higher by PSA (out of over 800 examples graded to date!). Condition-sensitive #1 card in extraordinarily high grade featuring Hall of Fame pitcher Whitey Ford, from the popular 1951 Bowman issue. Besides being the number-one card in the set, this card also represents Ford's rookie card. The card displays four razor-sharp corners, perfect registration, brilliant colors, and is very well centered. The reverse has a couple barely noticeable wax stains, as is often the case with 1951 Bowmans. Being the number-one card in the set, #1 Ford is a true condition rarity. This card naturally gravitated to the top of the stack, usually exposing it to extra wear and handling, and thus making high-grade examples far more difficult to find than most other 1951 Bowmans and other Ford cards. This is an extremely attractive and extraordinarily high grade example of Ford's most sought-after card. Reserve $1,500. Estimate $3,000/$5,000+. SOLD FOR $8,813
