Interesting Notes: Davis finally won the award after finishing second the prior two years…still holds the record of most yards gained per play in one season with 11.7…finished his career scoring nearly one touchdown every nine plays from scrimmage…was part of two championship teams with the Los Angeles Rams after serving in Korea until 1950…was elected into the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame in 1961.

1950 Bowman #16

Featured Card: 1950 Bowman #16. Despite his solid playing career before and after winning the Heisman Trophy, Davis’ rookie card is actually pretty affordable. Of the current listings on eBay, the going rate seems to be about $30. As is usually the case on eBay, however, there is one auction sitting at $0.01 and another Buy It Now with a price tag of $350. Per the standard with vintage rookie cards, you will definitely pay a premium for a highly graded copy, so make sure you know what you are looking for in your collection. If you want the highest possible grades for all your cards, that is fine, but if you are just looking for any old copy of your favorite players or sets, you can definitely save some money by buying a raw copy.
