(LOT 5)
PSA "GEM MINT 10" 1949 Bowman #84 Roy Campanella Rookie Card – "1 of 2; HIGHEST GRADED EXAMPLE!

This utterly remarkable PSA 'GEM MINT 10" 1949 Bowman Roy Campanella Rookie Card along with only a single other example proudly reigns supreme as the finest of its kind! Unlike 'Camp's" iconic teammate Jackie Robinson who has several issues claiming possible rookie card status, the 1949 Bowman Campanella subject irrefutably stands as his "true" rookie card, with only a sole PSA encapsulated specimen boasting the "Perfect 10" assessment. Miraculous, to say the least, the last reported sale of a PSA 10 Campy was roughly one year ago when this same card tallied an utterly impressive $108,000 at a public auction! Elite collectors surely understand the rarity of finding an exalted rookie card boasting its 70th birthday in the hallowed PSA 10 holder, especially when the player stands as one of our National pastime's legendary stars. The Dodger 's immortal HOF catcher is represented via an incredible portrait image of the 3-time MVP winner that is encompassed by a rich and flawless autumn orange/brown background.

The snow-white borders are immaculate, with the image revealing atypical near-perfect centering. Four blistering sharp corner tips, razor sharp edging, and impeccable surfaces are the final exclamation points for this brilliant "pack-fresh" offering that has stubbornly defied "Father-Time". Winner of three MVP awards in a brief but outstanding career, Campy defined the embodiment of courage, and along with Jackie Robinson, was the inspirational leader of the great 1950's Brooklyn Dodger teams. Due to his tragic car accident, leaving Campanella paralyzed for life, there is an unquestionable sentiment and desirability for his cardboard jewels with NONE even approaching the prestige of this "Gem Mint 10" museum worthy masterpiece. After scouring this pinnacle offering, you will unquestionably agree that no cardboard relic could possibly provide finer aesthetics, with its coupled rookie card status and "perfect" PSA assessment meriting it a final resting place in one of the premier PSA Registered 1949 Bowman or Rookie card compilations!
