Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. In spite of nearly insurmountable racial obstacles, the heroic Jackie Robinson courageously transferred his Hall of Fame game from the Negro to the Big Leagues and ultimately into permanent immortality at Cooperstown. Graded EX-MT 6 by PSA. This 1948-49 Leaf Baseball #79 Jackie Robinson gum card features the legend at the dawn of his Brooklyn Dodgers career. The well centered portrait is crease-free with evenly touched corners and off-white edges that beautifully frames the "Dodger Blue" color scheme. As a note of reference, the reverse displays a corner crease and slight paper separation which does not protrude the surface. Additional slight paper pulling is further evident atop the "A" in Robinson's given name. Although the overall card presents lesser than the assigned grade, this icon post-war card is still an essential addition to any collection.
