    Description

    1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski #34 SGC EX+ 5.5. Recognized as one of the best defensive football players in the history of the sport, Bronco Nagurski was so good he is one of an elite class to have an award named in their honor. With far fewer sets produced compared to baseball, his card appearances are a precious few and always the most highly prized part of any vintage collection. His 1935 National Chicle entry - from the scarce high number run - is probably one of the top ten most important football cards ever produced. His is far and away the most valuable card in the National Chicle set. Bronko outpaces his closest competitor by multiples when it comes to value and desirability. Loved in any condition, high-end specimens such as this are treasured by collectors who hold onto them and have a tendency to not let them go very easily. Eight decades after circulation, the surviving supply fails to meet collector demand.

    Graded SGC EX+ 5.5. This is a fantastic example. The colors are supple with printing free of blemish or defect. His classic portrait rest a little high of center, corner show modest amounts of wear. A quality example of a iconic football card of a man revered by all football fans as much as he is to his his alma mater from Minnesota.
