(LOT 62)
1950 Bowman #21 Pee Wee Reese PSA 9 MINT - POP 2; Highest PSA Example!

MINT PEE WEE!!! One of Pee Wee Reese's most extraordinary cards is this PSA 9 MINT 1950 Bowman #21 keepsake that, along with a single other example, proudly stands as the finest of its kind! The spellbinding aesthetics of this masterpiece truly merit the near-impossible grade, with this exalted keepsake similar to Reese's championship caliber. Many historians agree that the driving force of the annual pennant-winning Brooklyn Dodgers was their beloved HOF shortstop and captain, Pee Wee Reese. The heart and soul of the Dodger machine, Reese earned the captain nod via his unparalleled leadership qualities, receiving his popular nickname by being a superior marbles player (Pee wee was a type of marble).

Synonymous with his solidified legacy comes this POP 2 offering that resides at the top of the charts. The pack-fresh image depicts a classic half-bust portrayal of the legendary shortstop with its crystal-clear clarity, brilliant hues, blindingly bright borders, immaculate surfaces and four sharp right-angled corners being the major highlights of this virtually pristine memento. Yet, the most remarkable feature has to be the virtually dead-on 50/50 centering, with this exact same card fetching a lofty $40K in a 2021 Memory Lane auction!
