Description

Set your advanced basketball collection apart with this near impossible 1950-51 Fischer's Bread label of legendary big man, George Mikan. Graded 40 VG 3 by SGC. This delicate die-cut relic was printed on a wafer-thin slice of paper and placed at the end of bread loaves. When infrequently encountered, such labels typically suffer from extensive tearing, glue residue or other significant detractors. Not only is this sample absent of such obtrusive wear, but it features a decidedly scarce image of "Mr. Basketball". By comparison, of the four total SGC graded specimens from the 1950-51 Fischer's Bread issue (three are available in this auction), this Mikan sample bests the next highest competitor by three grades. One of only a handful in existence.
