In continuation of our coverage of the most valuable sports cards of all time (see our recent Most Valuable Baseball and Basketball pieces) in this article we present the Most Valuable Football Cards of all time.
Many older vintage football cards don’t quite get the same level of respect as their baseball counterparts. Sometimes I wonder why; I guess baseball being America’s past time has led to a sort of lack of attention for older football players.
Because of this, I do believe that vintage football cards offer good value for collectors seeking a good investment opportunity. The only problem is that I’m not sure what the catalyst would be to help close that gap between older baseball and football cards.
I’m all ears–let me know in the comments if you can envision a scenario in which vintage football cards start to appreciate significantly versus vintage baseball cards.
Whatever the case, we hope you enjoy the following list of the most valuable football cards of all time. Some of the cards are quite rare, such as the first card on our list (N302 Dunlop) and some are not as rare and are mostly supported by the strong demand for the player and card.
We try to update these lists every year, but if you see something that should be on the list, let me know via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**Note with prices fluctuating so quickly, the numbers here might not be entirely precise, so if interested I encourage collectors to check PSA for some of the latest sales figures. The prices here were updated on February 25, 2021. I’ll try to keep this updated fairly frequently.Read More...
