Circa 1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson Sliding
Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,680
Graded VG-EX 4 by PSA. Outstanding example of Jackie Robinson (sliding pose) from the circa 1947 Bond Bread set. The thirteen-card set is devoted entirely to Jackie Robinson and features the Brooklyn Dodgers Hall of Famer in various black-and-white poses on glossy card stock. The offered card is well centered with a crisp image of Robinson and four strong corners. A small surface crease in the lower left corner (when held horizontally as intended) accounts for the modest assigned grade. The back, which features an image of Robinson alongside a testimonial for Bond Bread as well as advertising for the company, is boldly printed, with only a few light areas of staining present. (Important set dating note: In the past, guides have always dated all Jackie Robinson Bond Bread cards as issued in 1947. Recent outstanding research conducted by two true card scholars and presented on Net54 conclusively proves the set was actually issued over a period of several years, 1947-1950. That is why we've added a "circa" to "1947" in this description. Here's the link: http://www.net54baseball.com/showthread.php?t=171169.) The circa 1947 Bond Bread issue is a historic set, dating from Jackie Robinson's earliest days in the Major Leagues, and individual cards from this classic issue will always be extremely desirable. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+.SOLD FOR $1,680
