Sunday Fun-Day Fun Facts

26 February 2012

We all dream about the possibility… and here it is in the headlines. A football card valued at $10,000 has been discovered in a Michigan home!

A mid-1890s card of Harvard football player John Dunlop is considered by many experts to be the rarest football card in existence. As there are only approximately 10 John Dunlop cards known to exist, it’s no surprise that one has been valued at $18,000US. A mint condition Dunlop would probably push over $60,000US at auction.

 

The 1894 set put out by Mayo Tobacco was the first set ever dedicated to football players. As there was no National Fooball League at that period in time, the set focused on the USA’s 35 best Ivy League players.

The Dunlop card was among other cards presented to a local Michigan dealer earlier this month which were discovered in the attic of a home.

According to reports, the Dunlop card will be sold at Robert Edward Auctions in May 2012.

From Topps:

The Topps Golden Giveaway website is now. Featuring die-cut cards, high-end prizes, and digital coins to collect and trade, the site will be similar to the 2010 Topps Million Card Giveaway and 2011 Topps Diamond Giveaway. The major difference is that this promotion will not feature vintage cards which was the main drawing point of the previous promotions.

Redemption cards are available within packs of 2012 Topps Series 1, 2012 Topps Series 2, and 2012 Topps Update Series Baseball. Falling 1:6 hobby packs and one per jumbo pack, Topps Golden Giveaway code cards encourage collectors to gather virtual tokens which can eventually be turned into prizes. Also available are exclusive die-cut Golden Moments cards and rare base set parallels embedded with 14K gold.

Redemption code cards will expire on January 31, 2013. According to Topps, Golden Moments cards are unlocked 1:15 codes. Gold foil Golden Moments cards are 1:200 codes and one-of-one 14k Gold Golden Moments cards are 1:20,000 codes.
