1949 Bowman #224 Satchel Paige

Starting Bid - $400, Sold For - $1,560

Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. An outstanding example of this extremely high-demand card of Leroy "Satchel" Paige from the 1949 Bowman series. This rare high-number card has always been one of the key cards of both the set and the era, and naturally tends to be on most collectors' 1949 Bowman want lists. It is interesting to note that the back of the card makes mention of his years of "traveling around the Negro Leagues" before being signed by the Indians, and that "his exact age is unknown." Centered to the top, with four strong corners, a crisp image, and natural toning. Clean reverse. One of the key classics of all postwar baseball-card issues, this is a very attractive example of one of only several cards issued of Satchel Paige dating from his playing days. The SMR value is $1,200.  Reserve $400. Estimate $800/$1,200. SOLD FOR $1,560
