(LOT 61)
1949 Bowman #238 Bob Lemon Rookie PSA 9 MINT – POP 3; Highest PSA Example!

MINT LEMON ROOKIE!!! This extraordinary PSA 9 MINT 1949 Bowman #238 Bob Lemon Rookie is one of only three PSA examples that reign supreme on their illustrious Pop Chart! Similar to this card's pinnacle standing is Hall of Famer Bob Lemon's incredible 13-year career with Cleveland, with the right-handed pitcher compiling seven campaigns of 20+ wins and leading the Junior Circuit in victories on three separate occasions. His stoic portrait pose is flanked by a seemingly flawless cool-mint green background, with a well-centered image only slightly favoring the left edge.

Immaculate surfaces, pinpoint corner tips, fine edging, and the lack of any notable blemishes all support the world-class assessment, with this time-defying cardboard treasure appearing as if it were just pulled from a 1949 Bowman wax pack. Justifying the stature of its hallowed grade is another PSA 9 rookie fetching a staggering $32K in August 2023. The best of the best and Lemon's bona fide inaugural issue, it boasts a secure place at the summit of the PSA population report, anxiously awaiting a new home in one of the hobby's most esteemed 1949 Bowman PSA Registered sets!
