    1958 Topps Jim Brown #62 PSA NM-MT 8. Presented is Hall of Famer Jim Brown's rookie card. In 1957, the fullback won both NFL Rookie of the Year and MVP honors. Brown had been a four-sport athlete at Syracuse University: An All-American lacrosse player, a starter on the basketball team, and on the track and field team - finishing fifth in the national decathlon. He once told great tight end John Mackey, "Make sure when someone tackles you that he remembers how much it hurts." Brown followed that advice, punishing tacklers. He set many NFL rushing records, but when he began, teams only played a 12-game schedule. Later, Brown played six 14-game seasons, but never played a 16-game one. Thus, many of his records have been eclipsed, both because of the longer schedule and because Brown played only nine NFL seasons - he left to become movie actor. He still holds the NFL record for averaging 104.3 yards rushing per game for his career, and he averaged 5.2 yards per career carry, sixth all-time. Brown also holds records for the most years leading the NFL in rushing (8) and the most times scoring 24 or more points in a game (6). He won three NFL MVP Awards and led the Browns to the 1964 Championship. Off the field, Brown has been involved in some instances in which he was guilty of violent behavior. On the positive side, he works with youths involved with gang scenes in Los Angeles and Cleveland.

    In 2020, Brown was honored at the College Football Playoff National Championship as the greatest college football player of all-time. In 1983, when Franco Harris was getting close to Brown's all-time rushing record, Brown considered coming back in '84 to play at age 48. It's the mark of respect for the man that many experts thought he could do it. Here's a chance to add the NFL's toughest, and best, old school runner to your collection. Graded PSA NM-MT 8.
