Nationally recognized football card experts Mike Bonner and Carl Lamendola have written the ultimate vintage hobby guide. From the earliest football “scraps” to the latest astonishing finds, every well-researched chapter is supplemented with a variety of checklists and unique images of rare items. A must for advanced collectors and novices alike.
Within the text, the cards are examined in a general chronological order, from the earliest to the latest, covering just over a one hundred year time span beginning in 1887.
By necessity, many of the chapters cover multi-sport sets which include football cards, but are not exclusively devoted to them. To highlight the significance of the football cards contained within, the authors have reviewed a wide array of multi-sports offerings.
Other memorabilia covered include pennants, scraps, matchcovers, comic book ads, ice cream cup lids, bread labels, posters, stamps, cereal box, and milk carton panels. For the sake of convenience, these items are examined as card-style materials.
