Vintage Bowman Football Cards

Some of the most beautiful football cards in the hobby were produced by the Bowman Gum Company in the early 1950's.  The sets are loaded were stars and Hall of Fame members from the golden days of the NFL.  Please see our selection of Bowman cards as well as a 1950 wax box.  MSB continues to add new football inventory almost daily so check back often or send us an email with any special requests or wants.  Thanks again for your support.

1951 Topps Magic Football

In 1951 Topps produced its second set of football cards, this one much more mainstream looking compared to 1950 Feltbacks.  The Magic cards have a charm and uniqueness that is appealing.  We have added nearly half the set to our inventory, all PSA graded and all with the rub-off quiz intact.  If you are building a high grade unrubbed set, looking for a nice type specimen, or collecting cards from your alma mater this is a great opportunity to add to your collection.  As always please see our selection of vintage football and baseball in our growing inventory.

Army Navy Ticket stubs


Possibly the most recognizable rivalry in all of sports, the Army Navy game stands as symbol of what is American football.  This season will mark the 114th contest between these two teams.  The series began in 1890 and has been played annually since 1930.  MSB has nearly 20 classic stubs from this rivalry including the 1926 dedication of Soldier Field in Chicago and the 1945 "Game of Century" when the two teams entered the game ranked #1 and #2.  As always thanks for looking and for your continued support of MSB Sports Cards.

Over 350 New Items added to MSBsportscards.com

It has been a busy year for MSB Sports Cards.  Much buying, trading, and selling.  We are encouraged by the market for vintage football as it seems to continously grow and mature.  Even more exciting are first hand testimonials of new collectors entering the vintage football collecting niche.  Andy and I spoke to a number of collectors at the National that were self-labeled "nubies". 

1967 Royal Castle Miami Dolphins AFL

***ALL SOLD***

In 1967 the Royal Castle restaurant in Miami issued a a 27 card set featuring the AFL Miami Dolphins.  The cards are very scarce and rarely offered for sale.  MSB Sports Cards is pleased to have 16 of the 27 cards available (unfortunately none of the short prints), all in mid to high grade.  For a list of the cards reference either our new items or use the search function and "castle". 

The 1911 C55 Imperial Tobacco Hockey set

We recently purchased a near complete set of C55 Imperial Tobacco hockey cards, all solid mid grade.  We sold a number of the cards including the Vezina at the National; but a wide selection of nice cards still remain listed on our website.

MSB Sports Cards at the 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention

For the fourth consecutive year, MSB Sports Cards will be buying, selling, and trading at the National Sports Collectors Convention (this year held in Chicago).  We will be occupying booths 401P and 403P.  If you are at the show stop by and say hello, if you can't make it we will be open for business as usual and filling orders through the website. 


The 1935 National Chicle football set

Much has been written about what is arguably the most classic of the vintage football sets.  In 1935 the National Chicle Company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, produced a 36 card set of football players.  It was the first 20th century set that was devoted exclusively to football players as well as being widely distributed.  The set is full of stars including the most iconic card in the football hobby, Bronko Nagurski.  Check out our selection of National Chicle football cards ranging from collector grade to graded 9's.  

Stars of the Diamond: 1909 -1911 E254 Colgan's Chips

In 1909 the Colgan's Gum Company in Louisville, Kentucky began producing what would end two years later as a 289 card set containing 226 different players.  Colgan's were continuously updated during those two years as at least several print runs were done to correct errors, change font style and orientation, as well as document team changes. As a result there are multiple levels of rarity within the set with some cards being very common and others being extremely rare ( and the rest falling somewhere in between).
