Jones was a stud but Nightrain Lane's INT record, which he set his rookie year in a 12 game season, has stood for 65 years. He was also 7X first team all-pro, and his violent play served as a contributor to the origin of the facemask penalty.

He might not only be on the Defensive Rushmore, he could be the Abe Lincoln.

I agree that the Namath deserves to be on the list because it is a very popular card. Here is the thing I don't understand though: if you look online at any list that ranks the greatest QBs to ever play the game, he didn't even make the top 20! So how come his rookie card is so popular among collectors? What makes it so special?

New York. The Super Bowl prediction and win. The swinging image. The relative scarcity of the set.

The best nickname in FB history IMO.

I'm surprised to never hear much about 1959 Bazookas when people talk about great football cards. The set includes Jim Brown and Johnny Unitas, as well as other stars, and the cards are both attractive and rare. I'd take a '59 Bazooka Brown over a '58 Brown any day, and the '58 brown is one of the most desired of all football cards.

Default Bednarik Exhibit Checklist card

After Sunday nights BST Auction it looks like the Exhibit Checklist card showing Chuck Bednarik should make the Mt. Rushmore of cards seeing what it sold for!

A strong price for sure. Particularly since some collectors/dealers wonder whether it is a legitimate card or not. Would be curious what the grading companies would say about it.
