    1964 Philadelphia Mike Ditka #17 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop Four. The status of "greatest baseball team ever" is all but universally assigned to the 1927 New York Yankees, the corresponding gridiron honoree is with very little to no doubt that supremacy belongs to the squad that called Chicago's Soldier Field home during the 1985 NFL season. The team was a mammoth mix of talent and personalities with nicknames like "Sweetness" and "The Refrigerator." But if the talent-laden crew was a ship of fools, they were held in check by a stern captain, a favorite son of the Windy City named Mike Ditka. He appeared in multiple Super Bowls contributing as a player, assistant coach and head coach. Super Bowl XX was a crushing win over the New England Patriots by a tally of forty-six to ten at the New Orleans Superdome.

    This flawless example from the first of four annual Philadelphia Gum Football issues in 1964 circulated the following season Ditka and the Chicago Bears won the NFL Championship. Please, don't bid unless you want nothing but the best for your collection. This card is "brand new" and would be startling to those realizing it is actually over 50-years old. Graded PSA Gem MT 10! One of just four cards to earn the Gem MT label from a total population of now well over 300 submissions.
