    Detroit Lions fans, check this card out

    Amazing. First one I've ever seen. I was all set to bid on it (even though I can't afford it) when the price about doubled in the last minute.

    These cards basically just don't exist. So, in it's own way, this is probably more of a White Whale for a Lions fan than something from Barry.

    (For the youngsters that need a history lesson, believe it or not, the Lions of the 1950s were like the Patriots were a few years ago, winning multiple championships. Bobby Layne, a Hall of Famer, was like their Tom Brady.)

    That is VERY cool. Just about as cool as a Jim Thorpe Jacket/Patch.

    I have wanted to pick up old Layne cards from the 50s. They are usually reasonable graded by PSA but I just don't have the time to focus on a collection though.

    There aren't too many "Historic Greats" from the Lions. I can think of maybe 5 that I would consider or at least want an Auto/GU from. (Layne, Sims, Sanders,.......maybe Speilman if he never went to Cleveland)

    I think it will actually be FUN to be a Lions fan this year. The years past have not been too fun. I could ramble forever about the Lions so I will spare any future viewers of this post.

    Nice card though. Amazing it sold so high.

    Thanks
    Mike
