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.

As always thanks for your business!

MSB Musings

It has been nearly five years since MSB Sports Cards was formed with the philosophy/theme of "collectors first". Andy and I met as collectors, became friends, and later formed what has become a very fulfilling business. We still operate MSB with the perspective of collectors first; and are pleased to announce the addition of yet another collector to the MSB team, Brian Terjung. Brian strengthens MSB by bringing a strong knowledge of pre-war baseball as well as an excellent reputation within the hobby.

1932 Green Bay Packers Walker's Cleaners: Commemorating the NFL's first dynasty

Call it a failed promotion, or maybe too expensive of a venture for the Great Depression...but Packers Walker's Cleaners are such a rare collectible that they could not have possibly been produced in any great quantity. We have been tracking and searching for these premiums for the last 15 years and to this point have been able to account for four complete sets, two partials (almost complete) and a handful of singles. According the frontpiece of the album that was made to hold the individual prints, premiums were to be redeemed weekly at the Walker's Cleaners shop in Green Bay.
