1948 Bowman Basketball #10 Bob Davies PSA MINT 9

Starting Bid - $500.00, Sold For - $1,410.00

Graded MINT 9 by PSA. One of only six examples ever graded by PSA at this level with just one graded higher. Tremendous ultra high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Bob Davies, one of the key cards from this classic basketball card issue. The offered example has a perfectly crisp image, with flawless registration, and crisp, perfect off-white borders. Perfectly clean front and back, with four razor-sharp corners, with the slightest hint of a tilt to the image. The image of Davies practically jumps off the flawless bold, bright-red background. The reverse is also perfectly clean with bold black print. Cards from this set are extremely hard to find in this incredibly high grade in part because these cards (like 1949 Bowman baseball) often naturally have soft corners due to the quality of the paper stock on which they are printed. The 1948 Bowman Basketball series is particularly significant as this was the first set ever issued devoted exclusively to basketball. SMR value is $1,600. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $1,410.00
