1961 National City Bank Cleveland Browns Jim Brown

Over my years studying the post-war hobby, I can’t recall ever reading about the 1961 National City Bank Cleveland Browns set. The priciest card to sell from it is this PSA 9 Jim Brown, which sold for just over $20k in Memory Lane’s Summer 2022 Auction.

National City Bank released the 36-card set in sheets of six to depositors in the bank’s Quarterback Club.

Besides the Jim Brown, the set’s most desirable cards include the Quarterback Club Membership Card, Len Dawson, Lou Groza, and Bobby Mitchell.

Naturally, since drafting this post, I’ve been seeing these cards everywhere!
