Normally the baseballcardman



I know this is a baseball card blogg so please forgive me for posting a football card tonight. However, I have a problem and maybe you can help my friend and I solve it. A friend of mine that I work with collects vintage football cards. he came to work one day and said that he had bought a Bronko Nagurski 1935 National Chicle on E-bay. I said, yeah right, knowing that this card brings several thousand dollars. He says, "No I payed $100 for it. The Ebay seller sold it as a reprint." I said, good grief, you payed $100 for a reprint?" He replied, "But I don't think it is a reprint" I replied, "Well whatever, I will have to see it to believe it." So, when he received the card, he brought it to work and showed it to me. I said, "This is an old card." "But it has a green back like a reprint. Instead of a blue back like the originals." Anyway he is going to have it graded. But I am just asking for your opinion to see what all of you think?" I wonder if just maybe the back has been in the sun and faded? I just don't know, give me your guess or thoughts on this."
I am very anxiously waiting to see what all of you have to say.
Thank you from,
Normally the baseballcardman

That would be one heck of a find if it is original. I am not a football card expert by any means but that would be like someone selling an original DiMaggio Heads Up as a reprint. Let us know what happens.
