    1950 Topps Felt Backs Football Complete Set - #1 on the PSA Set Registry! Set GPA: 6.74: Set Ranking: #1 (By Far) on the PSA Set Registry. As passionate hobbyists we rip open the mail coverings which dare to hide the latest catalog of quality sports offerings placed up for auction. Truth be told after perusing that final page we remember but a few noteworthy lots that leave an indelible mark in our over-charged short-term memories. The set is Topps' first major release devoted to football. The 1950 Topps Felt Back edition is the prized acquisition of gridiron specialists. It elevates the pulse of football collectors, just as the 1952 Topps baseball series does to followers of our national pastime. The set is the cornerstone on which football collections are built on. The delicate felt layer is so prone to wear it would seem high grade examples would go the way of the 5- and 1-cent wax packs of gum cards. Unless some fortunate soul discovers an unopened box and (with some final additions) bestows upon the hobby the currently reigning king of 125-card complete master sets. The numbers are impressive to say the least: 103 felts (82.4%) equal the highest grade known; Forty-six (37%) earn the coveted "Pop 1-of-1 With None Higher" title; Thirty-seven others are pop 2 (30) or pop 3 (7) with none higher. The all collegiate level subject roster includes appearances of such stars/rookies as Joe Paterno, Glen Davis, Ernie Stautner, Leo Nomellini, Doak Walker and Jackie Jensen. To piece together a set of this quality card-by-card would be a monumental task few if any would undertake. The set is highlighted by: Graded - PSA NM-MT+ 8.5: 2 cards, w/ McKissack/Yellow and Turek/Yellow; PSA NM-MT 8: 25 cards, w/Bell, Clark, Coleman, Glen Davis, Dublinski, Fleishmann, Gitschier/Yellow, Gregus, Hagan, Charlie Justice, Kuhn, Laun, Lehew, Martin/Yellow, Mouser, Rakestraw, Sebek, Shaw/Yellow, Stalloni/Yellow, Szulborski , Teninga/Yellow, Towler/Yellow, Ulinksi, Weiner and Wilson; PSA NM+ 7.5: 3 cards, w/ Mathews/Yellow; PSA NM 7: 56 cards, w/Galiffa, Leon Hart/Brown, Leon Hart/Yellow, Jackie Jensen/Yellow, Malekoff/Yellow, Miller/Yellow, Leo Nomellini, Joe Paterno, Sitko/Yellow, Stautner and Doak Walker/Yellow; PSA EX-MT+ 6.5: 2 cards; PSA EX-MT 6: 30 cards, w/Jackie Jensen/Brown, Lee/Yellow, Malekoff/Brown, Perini/Yellow, Darrell Royal/Brown, Shaw/Brown, Sitko/Brown, Towler/Brown and Doak Walker/Brown; PSA EX 5: 5 cards, w/ Darrell Royal/Yellow and Turek/Brown; PSA VG-EX 4: 2 cards.
