1948 Leaf Boxing Complete Set (49)
Starting Bid - $300, Sold For - $1,200
The 1948 Leaf series is one of the most popular boxing sets ever issued. This set includes all the major boxing greats up to that time, and has always been a favorite with collectors. Offered is an extremely attractive complete 49-card set of Leaf Boxing. The set presents exceptionally well across the board, but careful examination reveals faint traces of glue on the reverse of thirty-eight cards (not immediately noticeable), which suggests that they were likely very carefully removed from an album at some point and would ultimately grade rather modestly despite an Ex to Ex-Mt (with some Vg-Ex) appearance. We have selected three cards to be graded by SGC. Grades listed below are without respect to the reverse. Keys: #1 Dempsey (Gd/Vg), 9 Jeffries (Vg-Ex), 17 Johnson (Ex), 25 Attell (Ex), 32 Schmeling (Ex), 38 Sharkey (Vg-Ex+, no glue), 48 Louis (VG/EX 50, no glue), 55 Corbett (EX+ 70, no glue), 63 Fitzsimmons (Ex), 64 Robinson (Ex+), 73 Tunney (EX+ 70, no glue), 93 Baer (Ex+), 101 Sullivan (Ex), and 102 LaMotta (Vg-Ex+). Total: 49 cards. SOLD FOR $1,200
