Brilliant rookie card of popular Dodgers catcher and Hall of Famer Roy Campanella. Just two examples have been graded higher, as this specimen has been assessed by PSA at the MINT 9 level, well-centered with sharp corners and a vivid image. An extremely appealing card, one of the keys to a set loaded with important rookies and Hall of Famers. The appearance of several MINT 9 examples at auction this year overstates the availability of the card, as prior to this year MINT 9 examples made their way to auction very infrequently, with just one example sold every year or two. The explosive growth in the hobby has unearthed a number of high-grade examples as of late, all but one auctioned by the same company. This example has remained with the same collector for nearly a decade, unrelated to those auctioned off earlier this year, one of the finest examples we have seen. A tremendous rookie card of the Brooklyn Dodgers legend.
