Description

Please note: This set is a complete set of 67, however there is one card that is not graded by PSA

One of the more elusive issues of the 1940s is found in the offered 1948 Safe-T Cards complete set of (67/67) cards. This multi-sport set features numerous Washington D.C. sporting figures including professional and collegiate baseball, football and basketball players, coaches and owners. The backs advertise the Jim Gibbons Cartoon-A-Quiz program in over ten different colors. The average grade of the set, not withstanding cards deemed "authentic," is 6.68 or between EX-MT 6 and NM 7. Included are PSA 9: (7 cards) with Harris, Kuhel, Margarita, Todd, Yost; PSA 8: (14 cards) with Baugh (signature variation), Betz, Bluege, A. Evans (mislabeled as A. Davis by PSA), Dente, Farmer, Feerick, Gilmer (with helmet), Ca. Griffith, Co. Griffith, Hawkins, McQuinn, Ortiz, Turyn; PSA 7: (18 cards) with Baugh (signature variation), Cl. Griffith, Waterfield; PSA 6: (12 cards) with Vernon; PSA 5: (6 cards) with Wynn; PSA Authentic: (4 cards) with Auerbach, Lemon and Rice. Although it is not on the PSA Registry, this regional set provides a special opportunity for the Beltway collector. For a complete list of key cards, please visit our website.
