1951 Berk Ross: Jesse Owens, PSA 4.5!

Every once in a while I stumble across a card that doesn't technically fit into any of my collections but is simply too awesome to let pass by. If the price is right I'm willing to bite the bullet and find a way to integrate it into my collection and show it the proper cardboard love my main collecting vices receive on a daily basis.

Berk Ross cards hold a very special place in my collecting soul so when I spotted the above 1951 Berk Ross featuring Jesse Owens I knew I wanted to nab it if I could. The price was very reasonable -- $22.50 delivered to my door -- and this gorgeous PSA 4.5 now calls my collection home. Owens' exploits and importance in not just athletics but history in general is well known, so adding this card holds extra meaning to me on a number of vital levels.

Here's the back for all you guys and gals who enjoy such things.


  1. Oh man. Agreed that would not fit my collecting, per se. But damn - great piece of vintage!

  2. I had no idea such a card existed. It's a very cool pick-up.

  3. Very cool card. Never seen it before, but now that I have... it has been added to my wish list. Thanks for sharing.
