1948 R346 Blue Tint #36 Jackie Robinson SGC NM+ 86
Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $948
Graded NM+ 86 by SGC. This is the only example graded at this level by SGC with just a sole NM/MT higher. Exceptional ultra high-grade example of Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson from the R346 Blue Tint set. R346 is a fascinating vintage set, which has received very little attention even though it is so distinctive and includes many great stars. This series was originally issued in vertical strips of eight cards, which were intended to be hand-cut by youngsters. The offered example is perfectly cut with a crisp image, near-perfect centering, and just tiny touches of wear at the tips of the four corners. The blank reverse is entirely clean. This is an outstanding high-grade example of one of the most iconic Hall of Famers from this unusual set. It is also one of Jackie Robinson's earliest cards and would be a very significant addition to any Jackie Robinson, Hall of Fame, or sample-card collection. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $948
