Set of 1958 Topps Football Cards

Brooklyn: Topps, 1958. Hardcover. 132 cards, a complete set, printed on both sides, the obverses in full color, the reverses in red and white. Very good to fine, no tears, stains, or creases (we guess they’ll grade from PSA 4 to 6). The set features all the NFL stars of 1958, led by the Jim Brown rookie card that, alone (graded 9), has sold at auction for $358,500 (Nov. 17, 2017). At $5 per card, our set is economical nostalgia. Near fine. Item #460

Want an axiom that’s true across all team games? Speed never slumps. Want an elevated idea at the peak? City on city games are a civilized substitute for war. Less axiomatic and less elevated, NFL football players come by the name professionals the same way as call girls, because they are both in the business of ruining their bodies for the pleasure of strangers. Some football coaches come by the name genius the same way as some insects come by the name centipede, not because they have 100 legs but because many people can’t count past 11.

“Not all of Mozart’s paintings were perfect.” –Andy Reid, head coach, KC Chiefs.
