    1962 Topps Jim Brown #28 Printing Plate (Yellow) SGC Authentic. Widely considered the greatest running back in the history of the National Football League, former Syracuse Orangemen standout Jimmy Brown was the sixth overall draft pick in 1957, leaving five teams to curse themselves for the foolishness of allowing the Browns to secure his services. The 1957 Rookie of the Year made his Topps debut in 1958 and remains a key entry in every card promotion in which he appears. One of his most sought-after appearances is his #28 card in the 1962 Topps series. We are all aware of the final card that youngsters gleefully pull from freshly opened wax packs but few have a deep insight into the process it takes to get to that exciting point. Offered is an original printer's plate that was used to apply the yellow ink portion of the card. The plate has some surface damage and but let's face it, it was used to print literally thousands of cards. Encapsulated SGC Authentic. What a fun and exciting addition to a football collection.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
