This autographed vintage 1948 Bowman Rookie card has been personally hand-signed by Yogi Berra of the New York Yankees. This autograph is certified by Professional Sports Authenticators (PSA/DNA). It comes encapsulated and authenticated in the plastic case. PSA has graded the signature on this card a perfect gem mint 10! According to Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), this card is Berra’s only recognized rookie card. The card features a black and white photo of Yogi Berra swinging a bat in his Yankees uniform, with no text on the front of the card. The 1948 Bowman set was the first card set from Bowman since 1941, and was the last card set from Bowman to be fully black and white, as subsequent sets were at least partially in color. They’re slightly smaller than the sports cards collectors would find in a store today, measuring 2-1/16 inches by 2-1/2 inches. An important note about Bowman’s 1848 set is that it had 48 cards that were printed on two 36-card sheets, which overpopulated some cards and made 12 of them a much tougher search, including Whitey Lockman, who played against Yogi Berra in the 1951 World Series. Other cards can be hard to find in higher PSA condition grades, such as Bobby Thomson (rookie), Johnny Sain (rookie), and Yogi Berra’s teammates Johnny Lindell (rookie), Allie Reynolds (rookie) and Tommy Henrich. The 1948 Bowman set includes the rookie cards of nine Hall of Fame baseball players: Yogi Berra, Ralph Kiner, Phil Rizzuto, Bob Feller, Warren Spahn, Johnny Mize, Stan Musial, Red Schoendienst, and Enos Slaughter. All of those cards from this set are considered rookie cards. This card is one of the most highly sought-after pieces of Yogi Berra’s vintage baseball memorabilia, and it doesn’t even feature an autograph.
