Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Hall of Famer, and the condition-sensitive "First Card" in its set. Among more than 1,400 copies recorded in PSA’s census reporting, just four examples have attained a higher tier. This is the rookie card of an esteemed Yankee great, released just prior to his two-year hitch in the Army: Ford would not return to baseball (or cardboard) until 1953. Whitey's 9-1 record, accomplished during his first season in 1950, merited the "Number 1 card" position of honor in Bowman's 1951 offering. That circumstance of placement also ensured a dearth of high grade examples for modern collectors seeking to fill sets. The exceptional, offered specimen of this key item will satisfy even the most stringent requirements for condition and appearance. The piece's corners culminate in perfectly defined points. Its colors are superb and the back is brightly printed. A perennially challenging milestone from the early '50's, in very sharp Near Mint to Mint condition.
