Default 1961 Nu Card Football

I need three cards to complete my 1961 Nu Card football set including the Ernie Davis RC. At the National I purchased a partial unopened box 19+ packs for $170 and will open it when I get home. Hey the guys who collect new cards spend $10 a pack, why can't I? More info when I get home.
Larry

That's awesome, Larry! Good luck on your box break and keep us posted.

Great seeing you at the National again.

Box break won't happen today. I am home, but still exhausted from the show. I'm updating my lists and filing cards away. The box break might require a little more skill than I can put into it today.

Larry I remember riding my Schwinn two blocks over to a small neighborhood grocery to buy those packs. I also remember finding the cards rather boring since it seemed like I got many, many dupes. I did however find the pennants exciting! I would look up each school in our old red World Book Encyclopedias to find out where they were!

From the packs and partial packs 31 pennant inserts some have "roller" marks

There are three cards in the set that command a premium #117 Hadl #143 Davis and #168 Gabriel. I was hopeful to find #143 Ernie Davis to complete my set but came up short. I did find one card of John Hadl oh and the two other commons I needed for my set.

I was able to upgrade several of the cards that were in my set so that's a plus. Judging the condition of some of the cards would indicate that sometime over the past 57 years someone had a peek at these and I should have expected that I guess. All would have been well if I would have pulled that Ernie Davis card

Now does anyone need a Vern Von Sydow?
