1948 Leaf Football Cards
The 1948 Leaf Football Card Set has 98 cards that measure 2 3/8" by 2 7/8". The 1948 Leaf Football Card Set features both college and professional players. These cards were issued in two different series, with the second series (50-98) being more difficult and expensive to collect. Although many of the 1948 Leaf football cards use the same images of players that appeared on the set that they issued the following year, these cards are easily distinguished by their cream paper color and the words "Copyright 1948" on the backs.
The key rookie cards from the 1948 Leaf Football Card Set include: #1 Sid Luckman, #4 Doak Walker, #13 Johnny Lujack, #22 Steve Van Buren, #26 Bob Waterfield, #34 Sammy Baugh, #52 Leo Nomellini, #53 Charley Conerly, #54 Chuck Bednarik, #73 Jackie Jensen, and #91 Leon Hart.
