View Set Composition

Often compared to 1952 Topps Baseball by football card enthusiasts, this set possesses all of the elements that make up a classic sportscard issue: beauty, rarity, notoriety, and high demand. Centering is the key to this set, as it almost seems to be the norm to find these cards with poor framing. Also, like their 1948 issue, the single prints of this issue have been the proverbial thorn in the side of many a collector, and often make up the most prized cards in the set in PSA 8 condition. Among them: Norm Van Brocklin (card # 1), #27 Miller, #36 Hancock, #45 Van Buren, #72 Schweder and most notorious of all, #144 Lansford. Finally, the rookie cards of Frank Gifford and Ollie Matson top off this winner of a set. To read an in-depth article, click here. To read a second article click here.
