This isn't my card, but I have the same one in slightly less condition. I know it's 1948 swell gum company... But can't find any value or scarcity on it. They're we're only a few sales in the feller I could track and they weren't high, but just looking for feedback. Thank you... Here is the card

In good condition I would say it is about a $25 card plus or minus $10 or so. Presentation is key and if there are any
significant creases.

In vg condition I would say is about $40-$60 again plus or
minus a few bucks. Where the wrinkles or small crease might
be is key again, along with color.

In vgex condition, I would say you are around a $70-$100 card
plus or minus a couple bucks on average. I might be a little
high. I paid a little more for a Lionel Carter card graded Sgc
50 because the corners were really nice with ok centering.
A small wrinkle on the back knocked it down.

In ex/mt grade, it could be $150++. NM even more.
Those grades aren't found often. The card above that is on
ebay as ex/mt does not look ex/mt. It does not look to grade
that high due to the bottom right corner for one. Hard to say
but I also see some possible wrinkles on the back of the
card from the ebay scan. Is that a pen mark on the back?
I would grade that vg maybe. For the one above I'd pay
$30-$40. But don't go by me. I can be cheap when I got
what I want \:\) .

Hope this helps as a guide!

Thank you. I only paid $20 for one in G/VG condition. Off centered, no creases, slightly soft corners, but still a nice card. Probably could have gotten it slightly cheaper, but not gonna make a big deal over a few bucks. Thanks again.
