Scarce 1948 Bowman Mikan Rookie Currently Up For Bid In Mile High Auction

Among the scarcest and most unique Hall of Fame basketball rookie issues is without question the multiple test variations of George Mikan’s iconic 1948 Bowman issue, an example of which is proudly offered in the Mile High Auction, the lot features the enticing and almost impossible tandem of both the exceedingly rare “Triple Back” overprint as well as the gray-printed obverse background. Like all surviving test examples from Bowman’s inaugural and groundbreaking hoops issue, the featured scarcity has been deemed PSA Authentic, as a result of having been sheet cut, but nevertheless presents in remarkably well-preserved NM or better condition, with NM qualities evident only at the corners, and brilliant NM/MT or better facets evident elsewhere, particularly in the obverse centering and in the registration of Mikan’s uncommonly well-focused image. MHCC Auction is currently open for bidding on ends on January 21.
