Interesting Auctions for Vintage Football Cards
Following are some eBay auctions that I found interesting. I update the list every day or two, so please bookmark the page and check back. The newest additions will be on top of each section. For more interesting auctions, see my Most-Watched Football Card Auctions page.
- Here is a nice group of PSA-graded 1954 Blue Ribbon Tea Canadian football cards, including album.
- The #2 set of 1969 Topps 4-in-1 cards in the PSA registry is for sale.
- I tried to offer 9 cents for this "Johnny Unitas error card," but eBay said the minimum offer is 99 cents.
- This 1967 Philadephia Junior Coffey card has quite the diamond cut!
- Like 1968 Topps Stand Up inserts? Here's a huge lot of them.
- Wow! Here is the only 1952 Bowman Large George Halas rookie card graded PSA 9.
- This 1964 Topps Denver Broncos team card has printing on it from the sheet that was stacked on top.
- I'm sure this is common knowledge among CFL fans, but I recently learned that Canadian Football Hall of Famer Gerry James also played in the NHL. James appeared on both football cards and hockey cards.
- I didn't know that you can tell which card is on top in an unopened 1961 Nu-Card pack. Apparently you can, because here is one with Roman Gabriel on top.
- Very cool: eight postcards personalized and signed by the 1951 Los Angeles Rams.
- If you don't mind pinholes, you might like this inexpensive lot of 1948 Leaf cards. The grading companies would grade the cards "poor" because of the pinholes, but I don't think the pinholes detract much from the looks of these cards.
- Here is a full set of 1960 Mayrose Cardinals cards, all graded PSA 10 and PSA 9.
- The images of the players are out of register, unfortunately, but this uncut panel of 1962 Post Cereal cards includes a pre-rookie card of Bob Lilly. The Lilly is one of four pre-rookie cards of Hall of Famers in the 1962 Post set. You can see the others on my pre-rookie card page.
- There are some big names in this lot of 1948-1952 cards, but some of them appear to have gone through a flood.
- Miscut lovers, here's a 1971 Topps Mel Renfro card with a big chunk of Dick Butkus's card on the bottom. And here's a 12-card lot of miscut 1971 Topps cards. Check out the Gus Otto/Bill Bergey card in the top row!
- Here is a 1970 Topps Super Glossy O.J. Simpson card with square corners. The seller calls it an error, but I presume it's just a proof that didn't go through the last bit of cutting. You can see the final product here.
- Another cool non-card item: a group of 1955 Ohio Tip matchboxes picturing Frank Gifford. Including matches!
- Not a football card, but a cool item: an old 1 cent football punchcard. As I understand it, you would pay a penny and push out a circle to reveal a play: touchdown, drop kick, line buck, etc. The play would determine the number of pieces of candy you got.
- Don't know what to get me for my birthday? This PSA 8.5 1965 Topps Joe Namath rookie card would work.
- You don't see a lot of 1969 Eskimo Pie cards out there. Here is one of Bob Griese and Ben Davidson.
- Seller gotthecoin has a huge list of 1950 Bowman proof cards for sale. I like the blue ones and the blue-and-yellow ones.
- These "Goofy Gags" were inserts in packs of 1963 Fleer football cards. Pretty goofy!
- I enjoyed scrolling through seller bunbunben's long list of 1960s Coke caps. I especially like seeing players who never appeared on cards: John Kirby, Bob Kilcullen, etc.
- Ron Pritchard's 1968 Houston Oilers team photo is very amusing.
- Weird: on this 1953 Bowman Pat Brady card, Brady's name appears to have been removed from either the card or the scan.
- I think the diamond cut on this 1956 Topps Art Donovan card is the worst I've ever seen.
- Wow, this PSA 8 1950 Bowman common went for $708.88!
- This is one of the few Continental Football League cards I have ever seen offered: a 1969 Orlando Panthers card of defensive tackle Al Rogers.
- Not a football card, but I thought you would enjoy the laugh: a 1987 Topps Reggie Jackson card with a "rare pinhole error"! See what other collectors think of the "error variation" in this message board thread. (Update: wow, someone actually bought it!)
- Any 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski is a good 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski. This SGC 30 went for $2550!
- These Christmas Rak Paks of 1961 Topps cards caught my eye, but it turns out that the cards weren't packaged by Topps. Before you buy one of these, be sure to read "Naughty Not Nice" in my friend Dave's Topps Archives Blog.
- Here's another of those Christmas Rak Paks that were not actually produced by Topps, this one containing 1968 Topps cards.
- This lot of cards pictures the 1966 Norfolk Neptunes, members of the Continental Football League. The seller told me that they appear to have been cut from milk cartons. That sounds right, because I found an old message board post where someone asked "Remember the Marva Maid milk cartons with the Neptunes players on them?" That's all I could find about them, though.
- Too bad about the recoloring on this 1894 Mayo Cut Plug "Anonymous" card. (It's easiest to see along the top border, but it looks like the sides got it, too.) The card looks like it was in decent shape before the recoloring.
