Football Card Price Guide History - 1973 Topps Franco Harris

This is almost a funny looking card of Franco wearing a Steeler Cap. Topps was not allowed to use NFL logos on this set but the cap makes sure you know it is the Steelers. Franco recently got fired from the Meadows for supporting Joe Paterno.  Here is how the card has done through the years in value:

(Fall 1982) Renata Galasso                       $4.25
10/1996 Sports Card Mag                                  $50.00
4/2005 Beckett Football                                      $25.00-50.00
Last week on Ebay (avg price)                          $21.71 (30 sales)
This rookie card has had a kind of up and down ride. I don't know if the Joe Paterno controversy has hurt the value of this card but it is worth 5 times what it was worth 30 years ago.
