1948 Rare Leaf PSA Graded Collection (7)

Starting Bid - $300.00, Sold For - $2,320.00

The first color baseball cards of the post-World War II era were produced by Chicago's Leaf Gum Company in 1948. Forty-nine cards in the set are considered "standard," and the additional "short print" series of forty-nine cards in the set are so rare that "Rare Leafs" has long been a formal card collecting hobby term. Leafs are without question one of the toughest postwar sets to complete because of all the rare cards. Offered is a collection of seven "Rare Leafs" from this classic set, each graded and encapsulated by PSA: #20 Sauer (RC, GOOD 2), 30 Goodman (RC, VG 3), 85 Philley (RC, VG 3), 137 Walker (VG-EX 4), 146 Reiser (VG-EX 4), 158 Brecheen (VG-EX 4), and 165 Mitchell (RC, VG-EX 4). This is an extremely attractive group with a much better appearance than suggested by the technically accurate assigned PSA grades. Total 7 cards. Reserve $300. Estimate $500/$1,000. SOLD FOR $2,320.00
