    Description

    Population one, only one finer!

    1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski #34 PSA NM-MT+ 8.5. Literally and figuratively one of the giants of the early professional game, Nagurski rose from prominence as a two-way superstar for the University of Minnesota to become the most celebrated member of the 1930's Chicago Bears. He'd help deliver three NFL Championships to the Windy City during his nine seasons under George Halas, and would join his iconic coach as one of the inaugural inductees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    But his elite skills account for only a portion of the desirability of this exceptional cardboard commemorative which, like the fabled 1952 Topps Mantle, is further elevated by the relative rarity of its late-series production. Compare the full PSA population to Knute Rockne, a key card from the early series, and you'll find the tragic Notre Dame coach more than doubling the Nagurski census.

    But even among the scant few survivors, this Nagurski distinguishes itself through its stunningly fine state of preservation, exhibiting virtually no suggestion that it has existed since the dark days of the Great Depression. Corners remain sharp, surfaces clean. Add to those plaudits the fine original production, resulting in sharp registration and well-balanced borders, and it's no surprise that only a single specimen has ever garnered a stronger PSA assessment. An investment-quality piece, particularly for those who believe that football cards are generally undervalued at present relative to the entrenched baseball market.
