    Description

    A spectacular representation of one of the hobby's most coveted rookies!

    1965 Topps Joe Namath #122 Rookie PSA NM-MT 8. It's a fitting tribute to Broadway Joe--a bit flamboyant, larger than life. This first pigskin issue to feature the "tall boy" format remains a fan favorite a half century after its debut, both for the eye-popping design and the iconic cast of characters it commemorates. But certainly no card from that 176-card set is more fiercely coveted than this important rookie celebrating the professional debut of the man who gave Mickey Mantle a run for his money for the title of ultimate playboy athlete.

    Just like his victory in Super Bowl III, the spectacular condition of the offered specimen comes as a tremendous surprise, as the oversized dimensions of the card complicated healthy survival. Among the almost 1,100 (non-qualified) attempts, only seven examples have ever bested this PSA NM-MT 8 representation on the PSA population chart. Color, gloss and registration earn kudos for the printer, and the complete absence of visible wear speaks to the loving care afforded by the original collector.
