    1977 Topps Steve Largent #177 PSA Gem Mint 10. Presented is the Gem Mint rookie card of NFL Hall of Fame receiver Steve Largent. Steve played football as a wide receiver for the University of Tulsa and was a fourth-round draft pick by the Houston Oilers in 1977. At 5'11", he was not tall, and he was not particularly fast. He played in four pre-season games for Houston and then was told he was about to be cut. Instead, he was traded to Seattle for a future eighth round draft choice. So, in four pre-season games he had decreased his value by four draft rounds. Needless to say, his fortunes changed for the better after that. With Seattle, Largent was reunited with Jerry Rhome, his former offensive coordinator at Tulsa. He was wanted. Largent quickly adapted to his new team, earned a starting job and caught 54 passes, third best in the NFL, in his rookie season.

    Largent had excellent quickness, was an excellent route runner, and was steady. He played all fourteen of his NFL seasons with Seattle, and in his first thirteen years he missed only four games. He held a reception record for catching a pass in 177 consecutive games. At the time of his retirement, in addition to the consecutive game reception record, he held NFL records for: most yards receiving (13,089), most receptions (819), most seasons with 50 or more catches (10), most seasons with 1,000 yards or more on receptions (8), and most touchdowns on receptions (100). He was in 7-time Pro Bowl selection and was the Walter Payton Man of the Year in 1988. After his football career, Largeant was a U.S. Congressman from Oklahoma, from 1994-2002. Graded PSA Gem Mint 10. Less than one percent of the total PSA population has graded GEM MINT!
