    Description

    1966 Philadelphia Dick Butkus #31 SGC 96 Mint 9 - Pop Two, None Higher! What Jim Brown is to running backs, Dick Butkus is to linebackers. "Vicious," "angry" and "intimidating" are all words that perfectly describe Butkus, but it was his passion that would prove to be his greatest attribute during his phenomenal career with the Chicago Bears. Easily one of the best linebackers to ever take the field, Butkus played as if he was on a mission to single-handedly stop the opposition. And he did it more often than not, while displaying a uncanny nose for the poor soul who happen to have the ball. A Pro Bowl selection in eight out of his nine years in the league, Butkus wore "Monsters of the Midway" blue for his entire career, his name still revered and honored when uttered on a freezing Sunday afternoon at Soldiers Field.

    Graded SGC 96 Mint 9, this card is one of only two to be anointed an almost unheard of 96 Mint 9 by SGC. This from a current total population of 117. Combine the PSA and SGC census reports and you have one of the .009% finest Butkus rookies known. Neither service shows a card rating higher. Virtually perfect in every way, this phenomenal card is made seemingly all the more enticing as the judges at SGC tend to be very conservative. The ultimate modern era card for Bear fans and HoF collectors alike.
