Critically Important Investment Piece

There are very few who would argue against Johnny Unitas as being one of the greatest QBs of all-time. He led the Colts to a Victory in Super Bowl V and won a staggering four league Most Valuable Player awards during his Hall of Famer career. The offered Unitas rookie card is one of just six graded NM-MT+ 8.5 by PSA with very few grading higher. The demand for this iconic vintage Football rookie card in such high-grade far exceeds supply. Easily boasting some of the finest surfaces we've seen on the issue with virtually zero excess print; an imperfection which plagues nearly every card. Possesses precise registration with vivid color and tremendous gloss. All four corners are dagger sharp and the edges possess a natural, rough cut appearance which we love. Almost dead centered to boot with only about a five point left to right shift present. All told, this is certainly one of the most important football cards ever auctioned publicly, but perhaps more intriguing is the future ROI of this Fine Art equivalent investment piece as the entire trading card market continues to mature. One of over 17,000 cards, lots, and sets up for bid in our 6th Auction of 2019. Click on the link above to view the other PWCC auction lots.
