IN BRIEF

Simply an iconic offering, this 1948 Leaf is the only true rookie card for American legend, Jackie Robinson. In fact, some collectors view this card as the single most important rookie card in the hobby, period. A stark example of “buy the card, not the grade”, this PSA 3.5 example’s eye appeal surpasses that of many PSA 6’s. Jackie Robinson’s collectibles prices continue to soar and, given his historical and cultural significance, he’ll likely remain one of the most investable athletes of all time.

THE ATHLETE

Jackie Robinson is not just a baseball hero, but an American hero. As a pioneer who broke baseball’s color barrier in 1947, he raised hopes and opportunities for the second half of the 20th century. Robinson was a central figure in the Brooklyn Dodgers’ National League Dynasty, playing in six World Series and taking the borough’s only title in 1955. He finished his illustrious and historic career with the following accolades: 6x All Star (1949-1954), NL MVP (1949), MLB Rookie of the Year (1947), NL Batting Champion (1949), 2x NL stolen base leader (1947, 1949). His jersey number 42 is retired by all MLB teams. In addition, Robinson was selected to the Baseball Hall of Fame and the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

THE OFFERING

This 1948 Leaf is the only true rookie card of baseball’s first African-American representative and American hero, Jackie Robinson.
Graded a 3.5 by PSA, sports collectibles leading grading agency; however, many notable collectors view this card as having better eye appeal than many PSA 6’s. According to CardLadder, a Jackie Robinson 1948 Leaf PSA 6 has a predicted value of $45,382, as of IPO date.
PWCC recently upgraded the card to a PWCC-E from a PWCC-A. You can learn more about the specifics here. The designation confirms that the card has exceptional aesthetic appeal for its grade.
The Jackie Robinson 1948 Leaf card is considered the most desirable in a set filled with early cards of greats such stars as Ted Williams, Stan Musial, Warren Spahn and DiMaggio.
According to CardboardConnection, the “1948-49 Leaf Baseball is significant because it was the first post-World War II set to feature color pictures on them. Virtually no sets were produced in the years previous due to wartime restrictions on ink, cardboard and many supplies needed to make gum. As a result, the set features several key Hall of Fame rookie cards.”
This iconic card possesses a vivid yellow background with some of the best print and clarity we’ve seen on the condition sensitive late 1940s production; however, it’s also one of the more difficult cards from a condition stand point. It usually suffers from poor print quality and color. Black print defects can severely hinder the eye-appeal in the light background, and the background itself often exhibits a faint or dull yellow color.
According to PWCC, “there is no contesting the fact that this man made a huge impact within the community and inspired countless men and women to change perspective. Jackie’s brand continues to grow as does the value of his fine-art like cards.”
Heritage has been quoted saying, “Is there any rookie card more historically important than that of this brave racial pioneer?”
