One of the few surviving examples of the holy grail of post-War boxing cards has found a new home.
The 1948 Leaf Rocky Graziano card you may have read about here last week was purchased Wednesday night.
The ultra-rare card, graded PSA 4, sold on eBay for $27,600.
While the 1948 Leaf boxing set is generally considered complete without it, the Graziano card is still sought after by those who collect rarities. Many believe the card was a salesman’s sample or pulled from production very early in the process for some unexplained reason. Only a few have surfaced in the 59 years since the product’s release.
Three of the Graziano cards known to exist have been graded by PSA, with none rated higher than a 5.
