    Description

    1965 Topps Joe Namath #122 PSA NM-MT 8. It's a fitting tribute to Broadway Joe--a bit flamboyant, larger than life. This first pigskin issue to feature the "tall boy" format remains a fan favorite a half century after its debut, both for the eye-popping design and the iconic cast of characters it commemorates. But certainly no card from that 176-card set is more fiercely coveted than this important rookie celebrating the professional debut of the man who gave Mickey Mantle a run for his money for the title of ultimate playboy athlete.

    Just like his victory in Super Bowl III, the spectacular condition of the offered specimen comes as a tremendous surprise, as the oversized dimensions of the card complicated healthy survival. Among the almost 1,400 (non-qualified) attempts, only eight examples have ever bested this unquestionably high-grade representation on the PSA population chart.

    Graded PSA NM-MT 8. Color, gloss and registration are first rate here with centering and the lightest of corner touches stand in the way of a likely Mint rating. Based on recent auction results this card is far ahead of the rest for title of "The Premier 1960's Football Card."
