Posted By: <b>Keith</b><p>Has anyone ever seen one of these "cards" before? I picked this up in a large group of ephemera belonging to Emil Naric, a star for the late 30's University of Football team, who, after WWII, turned down an oppurtunity to play for the Steelers, to take a coaching job and full time law school enrollment at West Virginia Univ. The ephemera included a few signed checks from Emil Narick signed during his days as coach and I believe Captain of the West Virginia football team, and much more.<br /><br />This card measures 4.25 inches by 2.75 inches and is on light stock paper. There are no markings on back. Has anyone seen this issue before?<br /><br /><img src="http://i112.photobucket.com/albums/n193/kjjavic/Narick.jpg">

Posted By: <b>Frank Rose</b><p>I would be skeptical of it being part of Pitt Panthers series, likely because two or more Pitt different players would have shown up by now. <br />Pennsylvania is a pretty decent football collectors state. Likely part of an issue of star college players in 1939. If this can confirmed as being a premium issue and a true type card, a great piece. Hopefully some more turn up, but until that happens, no one can grade it or appraise it.<br />Frank Rose<br />Gridiron Greats Magazine
