1955 Topps All-American Football #37 Jim Thorpe PSA NM-MT 8

Starting Bid - $200, Sold For - $1,659

Graded NM-MT 8 by PSA. Extremely attractive high-grade example of #37 Jim Thorpe from the 1955 Topps All-American series. Four pack-fresh corners, bold colors, snow-white borders, and a flawless image. Centered slightly to the left which is all that keeps this from a higher grade. Perfectly crisp and clean both front and back. Only twelve examples grade higher out of 898 evaluated to date. One of football-card collecting's, and Hall of Fame legend Jim Thorpe's, most desirable cards. It is also one of the key cards to PSA's Top 250 Sportscards in the Hobby set, based on the book Collecting Sports Legends: The Ultimate Hobby Guide, by Joe Orlando, which selects the most significant cards from all the different sports. The SMR value for the assigned grade is $950. Reserve $200. Estimate $500+. SOLD FOR $1,659
