(LOT 7)
1951 Bowman #20 Tom Landry Rookie (PSA Gem Mint 10) - "1 of 2" PSA Gem Mint 10 Examples!

This miraculous PSA "Gem Mint 10" 1951 Bowman Tom Landry Rookie card stands as one of only two examples at the perfect "10" assessment! Indeed, of the approximate 625 encapsulated specimens, only a single other example has managed to achieve sheer perfection by the meticulous PSA grading specialists. Landry's inaugural cardboard prize, it was issued by the popular Bowman Gum Co. long before Landry coached the renowned Dallas Cowboys. There isn't a single football enthusiast that isn't familiar with Tom Landry's remarkable coaching career with the "America's Team"; eventually leading to an eternal place in Canton, Ohio's football Hall of Fame. Long before Landry spearheaded the great Cowboys' teams, he was a fine defensive back with the New York Giants where he was solely responsible for creating the famous "umbrella defense."

Yet, his immense popularity in the gridiron circuit stems from his aforementioned brilliant 29-year Cowboys coaching career that included 5 NFC Championships and 2 Super Bowl victories. Synonymous with Landry's winning ways is the championship-like caliber of this earth-shattering cardboard marvel that has withstood the test of time via its pristine attributes. Every aspect of this card is simply immaculate including its crystal-clear clarity, sparkling red/blue uniform hues, blinding white borders, fine centering, flawless surfaces and pinpoint corners that could easily draw blood. Incredibly, 67 years have passed since the renowned Bowman Gum Co. inserted this Tom Landry rookie card in one of its bubble gum wax packs, with not a single blemish compromising its original pristine state. A remarkable heirloom that stands as Landry's irrefutable rookie card, its "Gem Mint 10" assessment is the perfect testament to his solidified stature as one of professional football's greatest all-time coaches!
