One of football card collecting's most desirable rarities, the 1952 Bowman Large Jim Lansford serves as both the player's rookie card, a short print, and the last card in the set.  The 1952 set was rife with short-printed cards, a result of printing larger cards on standard-sized press sheets.  Coupled with the tale of large quantities of the Lansford card being destroyed during production, the resulting scarcity and legend have made this the hobby's most valuable postwar football card.

Presented is an attractive midgrade example, consigned by the original owner, who is slowly liquidating his childhood collection.  We submitted the card to PSA, requesting no qualifiers, thus we received a grade of VG-EX 4, due largely to centering.  Corners and overall surface would imply an EX grade.  An extremely strong example of a very desirable card that has become unaffordable in higher grades.
