I wasn't aware of them until pretty recently myself. Here is the checklist from Nearmint's football gallery page

I'm very excited to add this to my central Washington sports collection... 1910 Grandview, Washington Football team RPPC. I was initially skeptical since Grandview was founded in 1909 with only 320 residents in 1910, but found the following link to a live action shot of a Grandview football game. Almost positive this team photo was taken by well-regarded photographer Asahel Curtis, who wrote the definitive History of Grandview. They sure look like the same uniforms: http://www.washingtonruralheritage.o...show/30/rec/24

Today at my monthly local show, I finished my 1963 Topps set:) This certain dealer is always set up, and none of his cards have price tags on them. When he gives you a price, it's always high, and I've never bought a card from him. But in his showcase I see the card I have been looking for, a 1963 Topps #96 Ray Nitschke RC and he gives me a price of $15 which I accept.

TanksAndSpartans 04-04-2015 05:54 PM

Nice card Larry! - I think you got a good deal. RC in that condition for one of the all-time greats - I doubt that price would be possible on the baseball side of the hobby.

LuckyLarry 04-05-2015 05:38 AM

Thanks guys always fun to find that last card! I've been chasing that Nitschke on Ebay for awhile, it's not a rare card, but I guess it's popular among collectors:) For a price guide, I use the 2012 "Standard Catalog of Vintage Football" and it values this card at $80 in NM condition. I was looking for a "collector grade" example for about 20% of book and I think this dealers price was fair.
I'm experiencing the same thing as I try to complete my 1962 set, the cards aren't rare, but dealers don't have a problem selling them with a little "mark-up":) These last four 1962 Topps "black beauties" will complete my 1960s Topps run:
#17 Ditka RC
#36 Ernie Davis RC
#88 Roman Gabriel RC
#90 Fran Tarkenton RC

ksfarmboy 04-05-2015 10:31 AM

Larry that's pretty crazy Nitschke had already played for 6 years before he got his first card. That would have been great if he had made the 57 set with all of the other rookies.

LuckyLarry 04-05-2015 03:06 PM

Clint: The standard catalog calls it his RC. Although "1st Topps card" might be a more accurate description:) I know about all the rookies in the 1957 Toops set, and I need two of them to complete my set #119 Starr and #151 Hornung.

TanksAndSpartans 04-05-2015 07:06 PM

Nearmint is showing a pre-rookie Nitschke - 61 Packers Lake to Lake. It seems so common for even star defensive players and OL to have their first major card several years later, I don't think about it that much anymore - lots of examples. Probably doesn't help that the football sets always seem to be relatively smaller the their baseball counterparts.

Way to go Lucky Larry. Would like to build that set one day.

I picked this '59 McGee up today.. couple of dents more than i like.. only 15 more to finish...

LuckyLarry 04-11-2015 05:47 PM

These two cards arrived today via an ebay purchase. I bought a 1935 Goudy baseball card from the seller, and as we often do, after we win a card we take a look to see what else they might have to offer. 1952 Bowman small #1 and #2 cards in the set. The seller had them listed "buy it now, or make an offer" so I made an offer:) The Van Brocklin in collector grade cost me $25 of course being the #1 card in the set adds a premium. The Otto Graham again in collector grade dealer accepted my offer of $18. Real glad to knock these off my list!

Footballdude 04-17-2015 07:15 PM

I don't know anything about this card, other than what it was advertised as. It was advertised as a 1932 Sanella Margerine Rugby card. It was only a few dollars, so I thought what the heck!. It sure looks more like American football rather than Rugby however. Even though it's probably just a generic illustration, I love the colors. It's about the size of the larger size Topps and Bowman cards of the 50's, but on thin card stock.

TanksAndSpartans 04-17-2015 07:23 PM

Interesting! I agree - the brown pants, vertical striped jerseys, and helmets all look like football in the 30s. Also, the brown ball (Rugby is a white ball at least in modern times). Another giveaway would be blocking. You can't block in Rugby and it could be argued that it looks like some blocking occurred. I do see "Rugby" on the back of the card though and given that our football isn't popular in any other country even in 2015 makes it seem more likely to be Rugby than American football. Anyone know what language that is?

Footballdude 04-17-2015 07:28 PM

I believe these cards are from Germany, but I cannot read German.

jefferyepayne 04-18-2015 06:19 AM

That is definitely American Football. A lot of sports sets show sports from around the world and often don't classify the players or sports they depict correctly. Here's a Spanish Grange card that says on the back he plays baseball.

I have a foreign card that depicts Jim Thorpe and calls him "Jom Thorpe" as well.

Still not sure how I feel about this pick up. On one hand, Tosi is real tough, the card has good eye appeal, and the price was reasonable. However, the hole does bug me. I guess I can use this as a filler and look to upgrade in the future.

While on the topic of this card, I understand it's rare since it's a high number, but the price seem really high. When I looked at the pop reports (PSA, SGC and BGS) a year or so ago, it was the rarest, but not by much - maybe 2-3 less graded than Kostka and only 10-15 less than the other high numbers. Also, it's not like Tosi was a HOF type player. Any insight on why this card has a premium?

I need the Isola as well - don't see a lot of those. I think you have to watch all the auction houses for Nags - not many sell in 99 cent eBay auctions even in low grades.... Keep us posted.

That is a nice card - why'd you hide the grade? I think the centering is great, but I'm guessing the corners weren't sharp enough to get more than.... 6?

It's a psa 5. I usually just try to fit the card in the picture. I've been eyeballing #23 in the set for a while and this one popped up graded in my price range $35 and no one else bid on it.. The back is prolly why the grade i assume.. It's stained or smoke or age I dunno

Must be tough to be a grader sometimes - I don't have a guess as to what that is either. Hopefully, it doesn't smell like smoke - I hate when I get that new eBay package, open it up, and it smells like someone was in the package smoking.

Unfortunate paper loss. I like that this one was beginning to not have the position either.

I had a good Monday at my mailbox: five baseball cards, one basketball card,six hockey cards, and ONE football card:)
1948 Bowman #3 Johnny Lujack (SP) RC. I've learned that Bowmans third series of '48 FB cards are scarce, skip numbered starting at #3 ending at #108 all divisible by three. Look, if I have the pleasure of meeting some of you guys at the National this year, I'll forget your name in like five minutes. But I remember this divisibility rule from when I was ten years old: "Sum the digits if the result is divisible by 3, then the original number is divisible by 3" example: #108 → 1 + 0 + 8 = 9 and clearly divisible by 3. So it's easy to remember which cards are the SPs. I'm still chipping away at this set, needing 24 more, of which nine are divisible by three:)

Very nice to see a 48 Bowman - I always found it interesting that the basketball and baseball sets from around the same time are color. And love the divisibility rule - first time I ever saw that.

Scored again on the Fairmont's. This is just part of the group. If anybody has Fairmont's from any year I have dupes to trade or will buy outright.
