About the '57 "half" card.
Funny (or sad) story: A few years back, at a local mall card show, I came across a dealer who had a pretty big stack of 1957 Topps cards that were cut in half, like your Unitas, sitting in his showcase. He wasn't a regular football guy and had no clue what they were. He really thought they were small sized football cards, until I showed him some of the same 57's, that I had bought at another table, that were not cut in half. I wasn't trying to be mean or nothing, I even waited until no other customers were lingering around to tell him. When he realized it you could tell he really had no clue, and I'll bet he paid some pretty decent money for them. You could just tell, he looked so disappointed.
Richard: I guess back in '57 cutting cards in two was the best way to double your collection!

Nice stuff, guys!

Picked up this W560 playing card of HOFer Ken Strong the other day. Been looking for this one for years!

Default Murad Football

I just picked up the Michigan card this week, and got ahold of the Murad package in August. All I need is Colgate and I'll have my own personal T51 football subset.

As a side note, I am continually annoyed that the T51 set seems to have included every college in the country except Carlisle.

Won a lot of 48 Leaf at auction - low grade for sure, but I'm happy for the most part.

Really nice Leaf cards there, gotta love the Leaf and Bowman sets from 48-55. Would love to eventually get some of the rookies from those years like Luckman, Tittle and so on but not cheap and starting to increase more and more as they should.

Follow-up to completing the 1964 Topps football set: When I went through my cards I found I still needed #28 Booker Edgerson SP so I'm not done yet.
Bet this has happened to you before as well

YES. When I was getting close to completing my run of nationally distributed football cards I decided to go back through my checklists and verify what I had left to get. Found out I had mistakenly crossed off about 20 cards

I feel for you, Larry, but you'll finish it soon!

Absolutely love the 57's especially the Van Brocklin and Tittle. Also those leaf's are great. I will be adding some of those to my collection some day soon. Here are a few of my latest football pickups. Just got the Landry and Griese back from a submission. I had picked them up at a local show.

Thanks Ty. I was hoping for PSA 5 on the Landry but I am very happy with a 4 as it is for sure a high-end 4.
