Considered among the rarest key rookie cards from all of the 1940s and one of the most desired cards in the hobby, Collectable is proud to present a 1948-1949 Leaf Satchel Paige. Paige’s legendary baseball career spanned **5 decades **and split between the Negro Leagues and the Major Leagues. Graded an SGC 30 Good 2.


Leroy “Satchel” Paige’s is considered one of the greatest pitchers in baseball history. His historic and pioneering baseball career spanned a remarkable five decades, split between the Negro Leagues and the Major Leagues. At age 42 in 1948, Paige made his major league debut for the Cleveland Indians; to this day, this makes him the oldest debutant in major league history. Additionally, Paige was 59 years old when he played his last major league game, which is also a record that stands to this day. Paige was the first black pitcher to play in the American League and was the seventh black player to play in Major League Baseball. A 2× MLB All-Star (1952, 1953), 5× Negro league All-Star (1934, 1936, 1941-1943), World Series champion (1948), Negro World Series champion (1942), Paige became the first electee of the Negro League Committee to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1971.


According to PWCC, “Offered here is a truly special example of the hands-down rarest key rookie card from all of the 1940s. The 1948 Leaf Satchel Paige is one of these hotly desired mainstream productions, yet also one of those cards you simply never can grasp on account of its inherent rarity and production limitations.”
The card was graded a 30 Good 2 by SGC, one of the three leading grading agencies in sports collectibles. Out of 63 submissions, 9 cards have received a grade of 30 from SGC with 35 graded higher.
According to PSA, "During Paige’s playing career, only a handful of cards were issued, but all of them carry meaningful weight. Only one Topps card (1953) and one Bowman card (1949) were produced…[But] the card that is the unquestioned king of all Paige cards is his 1948/1949 Leaf.’
According to Heritage Auctions, this card is “one of the hardest and most desired cards of the modern era.”
One of several scarce short prints, the Paige card suffers from poor print quality and registration to complicate matters.
Joe Posnanski was quoted in Sports Illustrated as saying, “Joe DiMaggio would say that Paige was the best he ever faced. Bob Feller would say that Paige was the best he ever saw. Hack Wilson would say that the ball looked like a marble when it crossed the plate. Dizzy Dean would say that Paige’s fastball made his own look like a changeup."
