(LOT 66)
1948 Bowman #6 Yogi Berra Rookie PSA 8.5 NM-MT+

YOGI ROOKIE!!! Yogi Berra's most prized card is his 1948 Bowman rookie, offered here in a spectacular PSA 8.5 holder with only four others existing at this stratospheric plateau, and a mere eleven graded higher! Berra's lifetime achievements are just as compelling as his representation on the presented card, and many historians consider this remarkable Hall of Fame catcher as the greatest catcher in major league history. His World Series records include: 14 appearances, 10 championships, 75 games played in and 71 all-time hits. If that isn't enough, he won 3 MVP awards and played in a remarkable 15 all-star games.

All of the above are a steadfast testament to Berra's greatness, justifying why thousands of elite collectors' scramble to obtain his finest existing cards, with his 1948 Bowman rookie issue obviously his most treasured cardboard artifact. Berra's picturesque black & white batting image depicts superior contrast and sensational clarity as the Yankee legend completes his classic swing. Near-flawless attributes include pinpoint corners, sharp edging, super clean surfaces, and atypical near "dead-on" centering. Unquestionably, a "pack fresh" looking card, the super high 8.5 assessment is more than substantiated by the aforementioned immaculate-like technical qualities that place it as one of the most coveted Yogi Berra cards extant!
