1947 Bond Bread Jackie Robinson PSA-Graded Collection (7)
Starting Bid - $1,000, Sold For - $4,113
Outstanding collection of seven cards (four different) from the 1947 Bond Bread set featuring Jackie Robinson. One of the most historically significant baseball-card sets ever issued, commemorating Jackie Robinson's historic shattering of the color barrier. These cards were regionally distributed only in the New York area, and were primarily available in black neighborhoods. One card was packaged with each loaf of Bond Bread. We believe the distinctive portrait card, the only card in the set with a facsimile autograph on the front and a biography on the reverse (of which there are three examples in this collection) was handed out at stores separately to introduce the set (as opposed to being packaged in loaves). All seven cards have been encapsulated and graded by PSA: #3 batting, no sleeves (EX 5), three 6 portrait, facsimile autograph (EX-MT+ 6.5, two EX-MT 6), 11 stretching for throw, ball visible (VG-EX+ 4.5), two 12 stretching for throw, no ball visible (EX-MT 6, EX 5). Also included is a low-grade duplicate of card #11 stretching for throw, ball visible (Pr condition). Card numbers are from the Standard Catalog of Baseball Cards. From the Charlie Conlon Collection. Total 8 cards (seven graded and one raw). Reserve $1,000. Estimate $2,000/$3,000. SOLD FOR $4,113
