    Only eight superior!

    1965 Topps Joe Namath Rookie #122 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 over 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. It is arguably the most recognizable football card that exists, bar none.

    Just like Namath's victory in Super Bowl III, the spectacular condition of the offered specimen comes as a tremendous surprise, as the oversized dimensions of this issue have always complicated healthy survival. This high-achieving underdog has been bested only eight times in over 1,700 attempts, earning a spot near the peak of the pop with bright colors, perfect registration, sharp corners and fine centering.

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