Default Bill Russell

I do not know anything about this particular set. Doesn't look like Russell to me. Thoughts?

My guess is the checklist is incorrect and the player pictured on 62 is 61 and vice versa.

Indeed the guy on the left looks a lot more like Russell, no?

I concur. A very expensive Jesse Arnelle rookie.

I sent an email to Joe O. yesterday about the misidentification. No word back yet.

Default Bill Russell

That is absolutely Bill Russell. This is the 1955 All American Sports Club issue. It is really a group of thin sheets with multi-sport player portraits. Recently we've seen people cutting up these sheets and PSA is rating them. I have mixed feelings about that. However, people are buying them and it would be Russell's first "card".

Regards,

Pat

Pat, which one do you say "is absolutely Bill Russell": the one labeled Bill Russell or the one labeled Jess Arnelle? Your post is not clear. And please explain why: do you have a source image that might help clear things up?

Al, here's one you might get a kick out of:



I think this is Lovelette's first card, from the 1952 Olympics

It's obvious which one is Russell.

Neat issue, Adam, I have a Zatopek from the same, I can't find a Felix Potin in decent shape to save my life.

Oh and it looks like PSA now calls Russell Russell.
