    1998 Playoff Contender Rookie Ticket Autograph Peyton Manning #87 PSA Gem Mint 10. Considered by many to be the greatest quarterback ever to wear an NFL uniform, Peyton Manning closed out his peerless career just months ago as owner of the bulk of the most significant records for the position. His victory in the fiftieth edition of the Super Bowl was the 200th of his peerless career, and as he walked off the confetti-strewn playing field the five-year clock was already ticking toward his inevitable first-ballot Canton induction.

    Here's where it all started, nearly two decades ago, with an ultra-rare special release card that stands unchallenged as the most desirable of all Manning representations filed under the heading of "rookie." Just 200 of these cards were produced, and the high-gloss format often resulted in poor adhesion of the autographs applied to the surface, narrowing the supply of Gem Mint specimens to just a half dozen of the fifty-two now housed in a PSA slab.

    Remarkably, this is the second example of this card at this elite grade that we have had the good fortune to present to the collecting community, the last commanding a winning bid of $52,580 in our November 2016 Signature auction. We suspect it will be the last to emerge before Manning's enshrinement, which should add rocket fuel to the already-blazing market.
