Solid SGC 40 VG 3 example of popular Brooklyn slugger Duke Snider's rookie card. From 1949 through 1957 Snider would drive in 90 or more RBI's all 9 years and club 40 or more Home Runs 5 times. Centering shifted to the left with good color and image.

"Canada 150" Collector Provenance:

Our consignor had some health issues as a young boy and was unable to compete in sports, so the way he connected with his favorite sports of hockey, baseball and basketball was through collecting trading cards of the players.

Fortunately, our young collector’s health improved as he grew up and he was eventually able to get on the ice, diamond and hardwood at a competitive level. In addition, he also continued with his sports card collection.

He took that collection to another level when he embarked on a project to obtain the “rookie cards” of the top 150 NHL all-time points leaders, the top 150 MLB all-time home run hitters and the top 150 NBA all-time scoring leaders. He accomplished his goal (except for a handful of baseball rookies), and this “150” collection has been a decades long pursuit, but also a moving target as players have moved in and out of the lists.

Many of the cards are graded and are highly desired rookie issues in their particular sport. Countless others are of star players and present potential grading opportunities.

Our Canadian collector has enjoyed this pursuit and the colorful, eye pleasing mosaic of cards he had presented in frames for years, but feels the time is right to give them a new home and has entrusted SCP Auctions to present them to the market.
