For collector’s of sequentially numbered baseball cards, 1948 Leaf Baseball is a nightmare. The checklist contains 98 cards numbered randomly from 1 through 168. For those keeping score, that’s 70 missing numbers.

The design of these cards closely mirrors other 1948 Leaf sets with a simple border, a name plate on the bottom of the card, and an image that is a black and white photo with painted on colors.

The set includes several Hall of Fame players including the rookie cards for Satchel Paige, Jackie Robinson, and Phil Rizzuto among others.
