About NFL Cards
The value of NFL cards is largely based on condition, rarity, and demand. But sometimes the demand is in the details. Take the Charles "Concrete" Bednarik card for example. Though the name hails from a bygone era of current obscurity, his tackle on Hall of Fame running back Frank Gifford?who was to become a famous sports broadcaster after his NFL retirement?put Gifford on the sidelines for an entire season. Dubbed "The Hit" by NFL writers, broadcasters, and fans, it was also a collision between the beauty and the beast, the well-coiffed heartthrob, Gifford, and the robust Bednarik, who sold concrete between games in order to make a living. The Philadelphia Eagles? linebacker and center, who began his NFL career in 1949, is the only Eagle to wear No. 60 on his jersey since 1949. His Leaf card with the yellow background is considered the third most valuable NFL player card on the collectors? market. There are probably some Bednariks on the wing among current rookies and even some vets on the NFL memorabilia market. A solid collection of NFL rookie cards, trading cards, and card sets are available from reliable eBay sellers?some in new, mint, or near-mint condition. Maybe the future of one of the players holds something as compelling?and valuable?as Concrete Bednarik.
