1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski, PSA 7

We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the featured item in our inaugural auction, something we hinted about last week:  A high-grade 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski.

Known throughout the sports collecting hobby as the most coveted and valuable football card, this Nagurski has been graded NEAR MINT by PSA.  The Nagurski achieved its notoriety because it is the first card of a well-known Hall of Famer and famous professional wrestler.  It also comes from the scarce high number series of what is arguably football collecting’s most important prewar card set.

While the Nagurski has always been an extremely valuable card, it’s profile increase dramatically in 2006 when a MINT condition example sold for $240,000 in a highly-publicized private transaction.  That same card sold five years later for $350,000, again in a private transaction.  Sale prices of other Nagurski cards followed suit, with a NM-MT copy nearly reaching $60,000 in 2006.

The 1935 National Chicle Bronko Nagurski is the most important and highly sought-after football card in existence.

With just 16 graded examples at this level and only 12 higher, we’re proud to offer this Near Mint example, with sharp corners, excellent color and centering just a touch to the top right.  A seldom-encountered near mint copy of the most important football card in the hobby, this is an outstanding way to complete a high-grade 1935 National Chicle football set or a cornerstone to a quality Hall of Fame rookies population.
