Exceptional offering! On the market this month is the finest Topps Joe Namath rookie card we've brokered in our long tenure. This card boasts all the eye appeal of a $250,000+ MINT copy with it's gorgeous centering and print. The card boasts stark white borders with blemish free edges and precise registration. The right two corners are completely untouched while the left two corners have the most modest of touches present which is the only reason why this card is currently sitting in a '9' holder. This critically important rookie card is a fitting tribute to Namath's larger than life personality. The '65 Topps production marks the first year in which Topps produced cards with dimensions of 2-1/2" x 4-11/16" (the extra space meant larger photos on the front of the cards). Namath's confident demeanor and playboy lifestyle only improved Namath's already elite brand. The investment piece offered here is incomparably important to the market and sets a tone from which all others are measured. What will become of an investment piece like this when the trading card market elevates to awareness among traditional markets? All told, this card is a masterpiece which ranks among the best copies in existence. Comes highly recommended by PWCC. Part of a tremendous run of '65 Topps Tall Boys on the market this month. Nearly every card is assessed as NRMT to NM-MT with many showing better qualities than the grade assigned. One of over 19,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 5th Auction of 2019.
