(LOT 74)
"Unique for the Grade" 1972 Topps #200 Staubach Rookie Card (SGC Mint+ 9.5) - SOLE & Highest Graded SGC Example!

Synonymous with Roger 'The Dodger" Staubach's immortal stature comes along this miraculous SGC Mint+ 9.5 Rookie Card offering that proudly stands tall as the highest SGC graded example extant! One of Pro-Football's greatest quarterbacks ever, Staubach led the Cowboys to four Super Bowls, leading the Dallas Cowboys to two victories against the Dolphins in Super Bowl VI (where he claimed an MVP award) and the Broncos in Super Bowl XII. The legendary Canton Ohio inductee realized iconic stature long before his 1969 NFL debut when he won the illustrious Heisman Trophy as Navy's signal caller in 1963, and then went on to serve roughly 5 years in the Navy including a tour of duty in Vietnam.

One of the "Gridiron's" most popular quarterbacks, his fame stemmed from his uncanny ability to "pull" games out via last minute drives including his immaculate 'Hail Mary Pass" to beat the Vikings in the final seconds of a 1975 Playoff match. Likewise, this prestigious offering carries miraculous features, rightfully earning the "Unique for the Grade" SGC 9.5 assessment. Staubach's classic "half-body" somewhat portrait pose is absolutely brilliant, highlighted by his bright white Cowboys jersey and the robust pink hued frame that includes a radiant yellow 'COWBOYS text along the upper region. Near-perfect centering, razor sharp corner tips, gleaming surfaces and a super clean verso all support the rare assessment that is reserved for a virtually perfect card such as this momentous keepsake. The pinnacle SGC encapsulated Staubach #200 rookie card, its "best of the rest" stature truly carries the unparalleled championship caliber of the Hall of Fame player it represents!
