George Mikan's #69 basketball card is by far the most sought after card in the famed 1948 Bowman basketball series of colored cards and is arguably the greatest basketball card ever produced. Examples in high grade are difficult to come by due to Bowman's manufacturing process and authentic signed examples are even scarcer. Hobby fresh and submitted to PSA by Lelands, this EX-MT 6 with MINT 9 autograph is a Pop 1 highest graded example with none higher. Sources from a New York autograph hound who has been collecting athlete and celebrity signatures since the 1940's. Signed in strong and bright blue ink, the signature is perfectly placed on Mikan's Minneapolis Lakers uniform and has a tremendous overall appearance. This is a must for any serious basketball autograph enthusiast.
