Memory Lane Inc. Sells Holy Grail Of Football Cards For Record Price

The most iconic football card in the hobby has set a new sales record. The only PSA 9 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski has been sold for $350,000 recently in a private transaction brokered by Memory Lane Inc. The card had been the centerpiece of a collector’s number one all-time finest Hall of Fame rookie cards set listed on PSA’s Set Registry. It was recently purchased by another collector on the east coast who has chosen to remain anonymous. The 1935 National Chicle Nagurski is the most valuable football card and was ranked 17th on the list of the hobby’s most important sports cards compiled for publication in Collecting Sports Legends, a coffee table book chronicling the most important sports cards and memorabilia.
