For example, this weekend I picked up a 1957 Marchetti in Vg-ex for $1.36. I got a 1963 Marchetti for 99 cents. I snagged a 1966 Keith Lincoln in Vg-Ex/Ex for 6 cents plus 25 cents shipping. I can remember hearing how football cards were underpriced in the 1980's. Well, as I am closing in on completing my sets for the 50's and 60's, I want the good times to keep rolling.
I hear you, Sam! It amazes me how reasonably priced most 50s and 60s football is compared to baseball. High grade HOF RC are the exception due to the "registry people". I believe football is still significantly undervalued and has a lot of upside.
