When it comes to Football cards fetching high prices, the PSA * Sid Luckman 1948 with a yellow background is valued at US$71,800!
Luckman was chosen in the 2nd overall pick of the NFL Draft of 1939 out of Columbia. He won 4 Championships, in 1940, 1941, 1943 and 1946, and was part of the Monsters of the Midway for his whole career. His induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame happened in 1965. This football cards value is so high because, out of the 83 cards that the PSA graded when it was sold, only 2 managed to receive a grading of NM-MT 8. No copies of this football card exist with a higher grade.
An example of the wisdom of collecting rare football cards is the SGC 96 Sammy Baugh of the same year. Even if they are in poor condition, these cards very often retail at around US$100. As few as 3 of the Baugh cards are available with a PSA grading of 8.5, and there are only 16 with a grading of 8. Baugh is also a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and is famous for his role as the Washington Redskins quarterback.
