Vintage Pack Rip at the National: 1958 Topps Football

1958 Topps football, how do we love thee?

Topps Football Cello Pack 1958Well, there’s the Jim Brown rookie card.  Second year cards of John Unitas and Bart Starr.  Several other Hall of Famers are also present in this pre-Lombardi era set.

There are thousands of collectors who either own a set or are working on one.  There are far fewer who have done a 1958 Topps cello pack break.

24 hours after breaking into a similar 12-card 1968 Topps baseball pack and pulling a couple of Hall of Fame All-Star cards, Just Collect’s Leighton Sheldon brought out one such pack for the entertainment of a few folks who watched the action from booth 520 at the 2014 National Sports Collectors Convention.
