Current Finest Possible Set Rating: 10.281

Bowman's final football set, like their final baseball set of this year is a noble effort, often cited as their most attractive set ever issued. This is also a deceptively tough set to complete, as well; twenty cards have seen only one copy grade on unqualified PSA 8 or better, with six additional cards yet to grade that high. Top cards include Frank Gifford, Tom Landry, and the rookie card of Pat Summerall. To read an in-depth article, click here.
