I find this hard to believe but I just won an auction on EBAY for a 1963 Jim Taylor PSA 7

for $16. this to me is unfathomable to me. This dude was a complete stud. Reminds you of Csonka and Riggins. His cards are so cheap.

Work hard and you will succeed!!

    I often wish I was into football more than I am because the prices are so cheap on so many superstars.

    Fantastic pick up he was a STUD!
    One of the best backfields ever with Starr and Horning. Especially 1961 & 1962!!!

    Congrats on the pick-up. Most running backs don't get much respect from collectors especially beyond the rookie year. Lineman and defensive studs are even worse. Football is all about the quarterback IMO. I did find Bobby Mitchell and Chuck Howley rookies in a dollar box.

    My opinion has always been that PSA 7 vintage cards, overall, are the best cards offering a combination of collectability and affordability.

    In reality the major difference between a PSA 7 vintage card with decent centering and a higher grade from the 1960's on back, is the 7 was stored in a shoebox, whereby the higher grades were stored in a glassine type envelope similar to the way stamps were stored, or some other storage method, or were obtained many years later from busting unopened packs.

    The 7's were perhaps handled a few times over the years, but were not played with by kids to get dings, creases, scuffing, etc, which in my view can detract from a card.

    i have all sorts of PSA grades in my collection. However for starting a specific collection and/or "filling holes" in a current collection say a particular year, I've always liked 7's the best.

    I wish I had the money to afford those beautiful amazing PSA registry sets of vintage 8's, 9's, and 10's, but I'll have to take what i can get. 😊

    The word Mint is in the description

    Great pick up.

    That $60 sale a month ago was for the same cert#.
    Something seems weird about someone buying at 50-100% premium, then a month later sell at a 75% loss.

    You're the one that "found it hard to believe" and "unfathomable" you got the card for $16.

    Picked this up back on June 30th for $41.94 all in. Couldn't be happier with it, and it fits in the Hall Of Fame Registry as it is not PSA/DNA.

    Sweet pickup. Congrats

    Come to the pigskin side B) . My collection now is 90% football. 40's and 50's rookies of HOF'ers and stars fit my budget :)

    Love football. I'm fond of all the big three.

    1 - Base
    2- Foot
    3 - Baskets
    4 - Hockey
    5 - wrestling
    6 - probably wouldn't mind collecting some of the 60's sitcom cards. I don't but seems fun.

    Work hard and you will succeed!!
