1948 Leaf #76 Ted Williams SGC NM 84

Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $2,370

Graded NM 84 by SGC (submitted by REA). Extremely attractive ultra high-grade example of one of Ted Williams' most striking and popular cards. 1948 Leafs have always posed a problem for condition-conscious collectors. In addition to the many normal problems encountered with this issue (excessive toning, general wear from fragile paper stock, soft corners, centering issues, and print lines), collectors also have to deal with the wildly varying degrees of print quality that characterize the set. It is easy to see why 1948 Leafs are one of the most difficult of all issues to collect in high grade. The offered card is one of the highlights of an original-owner collection and displays a perfectly crisp image, with flawless registration, and four sharp corners. Perfectly clean front and back and centered ever-so-slightly to the left. Pack-fresh, crisp, high-grade example of one of Williams' most classic cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,370
