Description1970 Topps Joe Namath #150 PSA Gem Mint 10 - Pop One! By the time "Broadway Joe" posed for the photo on his 1970 Topps card, he'd already accomplished his crowning achievement. Defying the nearly universal predictions of sports pundits that the NFL's Baltimore Colts would be victorious in the third edition of the Super Bowl. Bristling at the avalanche of negativity directed at his underdog Jets, Namath famously proclaimed, "We're gonna win Sunday. I guarantee it."
And, as baseball Hall of Famer Dizzy Dean put it, "It ain't braggin' if you can back it up." Namath would do just that, vanquishing the heavily-favored Colts in Super Bowl III, perhaps the greatest forward leap in legitimizing the AFL as a true gridiron contender.
Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. Pop one! This is the only example graded GEM MINT!

Signature Internet Extended Bid: These Auctions are presented via catalog and online. Bidding is taken through our website or via phone. There are two phases of bidding during this type of auction: 1) Normal bidding: Bids are taken up until 10 PM CT the night the auction closes. 2) 30 Minute Ending: On a lot-by-lot basis, starting at 10:00 PM CT, any person who has bid on the lot previously may continue to bid on that lot until there are no more bids for 30 minutes. For example, if you bid on a lot during Normal Bidding, you could participate during Extended Bidding for that lot, but not on lots you did not bid on previously. If a bid was placed at 10:15, the new end time for that lot would become 10:45. If no other bids were placed before 10:45, the lot would close. If you are the high bidder on a lot, changing your bid will not extend the bidding during the 30 Minute Ending phase (only a bid from another bidder will extend bidding). If you are the only bidder at 10 PM, you will automatically win the lot at 10:30. Important: After normal bidding ends, you must be signed-on to the Heritage site to see the bidding option on lots where you qualify for extended bidding.
