1949 Bowman #224 Satchel Paige PSA NM 7

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $3,300

Graded NM 7 by PSA. An outstanding example of this extremely significant high-demand card of the legendary Leroy "Satchel" Paige from the 1949 Bowman series. Centered very slightly to the left, with four strong corners showing light touches of wear, bold colors, and flawless registration. Clean reverse. Rare high-number card which is 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." One of the key classics of all postwar baseball-card issues, this is a very attractive high-grade example of one of only several cards issued of Satchell Paige dating from his playing days. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $3,300
