1948-1949 Leaf Gum #79 Jackie Robinson Rookie

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,160

Graded VG/EX 50 by SGC. Presented is a very attractive example of the 1948 Leaf Gum rookie card of Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson. The 1948-1949 Leaf Bubble Gum card of Robinson is one of the most popular, striking, and classic of all Jackie Robinson cards. The offered example displays a perfectly crisp image with flawless registration and light, even wear to the four corners. Outstanding centering, very slightly to the top, and a faint vertical surface wrinkle extending from the top border to the brim of Robinson's cap. Boldly printed reverse. This exceptionally attractive card presents a rare collecting opportunity to acquire a modestly graded example of one of the icons of postwar Hall of Fame card collecting, and in the eyes of many, Jackie Robinson's single most desirable baseball card, at a fraction of the cost that a higher-grade example would command, without sacrificing anything in the way of eye-appeal. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000+. SOLD FOR $2,160
