    Population three, none higher!

    1957 Topps Bart Starr #119 Rookie PSA Mint 9. No quarterback in the history of the National Football League has planted his team's flag at the sport's mountain top as many times as the aptly-named Starr, who led his Green Bay Packers to glory five times, including victories in the first two editions of the Super Bowl. At eighty-three years of age, Starr remains one of the greatest living veterans of professional football, an essential soldier in the war that has supplanted baseball as the nation's most popular sport.

    Despite a surname that suggested a bright future, Starr had been the 200th selection in the 1956 NFL draft, taken in the seventeenth round largely as a personal favor to the basketball coach at Starr's Alabama alma mater, a friend of Packers personnel director Jack Vainisi. Though the young QB would show flashes of greatness in his earliest seasons at Lambeau, Starr would only earn the full-time starting role with the arrival of legendary coach Vince Lombardi in 1959, bringing about the greatest era of professional football dominance in history as joint leaders of the 1960's Packers.

    Much like the man whose NFL arrival it heralds, the presented trading card encounters no superiors in its field of endeavor, one of just three representations to merit a Mint 9 rating from the experts at PSA. None have ever soared higher. The elite grade leaves us little to report in an examination of condition beyond a litany of superlatives focused upon the bright coloration, perfect registration, masterful centering and complete absence of wear. It is, quite simply, the finest example of one of the most important football trading cards that exists.
