    1959 Bazooka Jim Brown PSA NM 7 - Pop One, None Higher! The 1959 Bazooka series of baseball and football stars are considered by many to be most beautiful cards of the modern era. The portraits are a dazzling display of rich colors and no-nonsense decoration that grab your attention. They are also not the easiest cards to acquire. PSA has only reviewed a little over 200 total cards from this eighteen-player football promotion and 70% of that total pop is encapsulated Authentic. Only seven examples are graded EX-MT or better. This is not too surprising as the cards came not nicely inserted into boxes of gum but served as the back panel of the packaging. Considering the retail process from print shop to store shelves and cards were exposed, this was a first-year issue and kids excitedly cutting their favorite player from the box we should be glad the "Authentic" percentage isn't higher than it is.

    The collector who cut this 1959 Bazooka Jim Brown card from the original box wisely followed instructions, kept to the outside of the dotted line leaving the entire keyline intact. They certainly never could have realized that six decades later this card would rank as one of the finest recorded examples of this series. Offered is the greatest running back ever - Jim Brown. Stunning colors. Graded PSA NM 7. From a total population of only twenty, this is the sole example in NM with none rated higher.
