    1986 Topps Jerry Rice #161 SGC 98 Gem 10 - The Ultimate SGC Example! Not only is Jerry Rice considered one of the best wide receivers in NFL history, he is considered one of the greatest NFL players at any position. Rice will forever be remembered for his superior conditioning and route running. One of the most reported examples of his unprecedented workout regiments may be "The Hill", a long steep hill that is two and a half miles up. Rice would sprint across the hill every day to make sure he maximized his potential on the field, and had the edge against all opponents. That "edge" was on full display when Rice put on a Superman cape during the 49ers' 49-26 rout of the San Diego Chargers at Super Bowl XXIX catching 10 passes for 149 yards, and he tied his own Super Bowl record with three touchdown receptions. His 1986 Topps rookie card is one of the most coveted cards of the modern era. A "Gem" assessment is the most coveted label gridiron fans want associated with their cards. We are pleased to present this flawless stunner graded SGC 98 Gem 10! Currently, there have been almost 1,700 submissions to SGC... This is the one and only card to have earned the revered Gem 98 rating!
