Presented is an outstanding one-of-a-kind original artwork for Bart Starr’s rookie card from the 1957 Topps football set. This is the actual artwork used in the production of the 1957 Topps football series. This is a particularly outstanding artwork by any measure and is also one of the very few 1957 Topps football paintings of Hall of Famers known to exist. As a point of reference, another key rookie card original artwork from the 1957 Topps football set, which featured Johnny Unitas, just recently appeared in a January 2016 public auction, where it realized a final sale price of $21,400. The offered artwork measures 4.75 x 3.5 inches. The reverse bears standard production-related remnants along with pencil notations. Excellent to Mint condition. Included with the artwork is an example of the issued card, on which this work appeared. Reserve $1,000. Estimate (open).
