Legendary Auctions is proud to be able to announce a historic hobby “find!” Until recently, only six verified examples of the elusive 1948 Leaf Boxing #50 Rocky Graziano card were known to exist, with the highest-graded copy being a PSA EX 5 specimen. Two weeks ago, we received a call from a family in the Northeast who, after going through their holdings, believed that they had unearthed a new Graziano example. Admittedly, at first, we thought the prospect was unlikely. But then, a box of approximately fifty Leaf Boxing cards arrived — including an incredibly well-preserved example of this important card. The most amazing thing is that this well-centered, colorful piece — bearing only a hint of corner wear — is now graded a lofty EX-MT+ 6.5 by PSA. (This is a full grade-and-a-half higher than what was previously the highest-graded example.) Legendary Auctions is pleased to be able to bring this new hobby rarity to the market!
Additionally, please note that we are actively accepting consignments for both our May Catalog and August Live Auctions. We already have more than 1,400 quality lots for May, and we’re setting aside some one-of-a-kind items for the Live auction!
