Football Card Price Guide History - 1976 Topps Walter Payton

Payton’s rookie card is probably the most expensive football rookie card (or any other football card) from the 1970s.  The funny thing though was that in the fall of 1982 according to Galasso’s price guide it was the same price as a 1972 Franco Harris rookie card – both going for $4.25. The fact that Payton broke Jim Brown’s rushing record a few years later and not Franco Harris, propelled this card.

(Fall 1982) Renata Galasso                                           $4.25
10/1996 Sports Card Mag                                             $200.00
4/2005 Beckett Football                                                $125.00-250.00
Last week on Ebay (avg price)                                      $133.11 (63 sales)
