(LOT 55)
1958 Topps #62 Jim Brown Rookie PSA 8 NM-MT

JIM BROWN ROOKIE!!! Jim Brown was the greatest running back to ever dawn a uniform on the gridiron. Brown was taken in the first round of the 1956 draft by the Cleveland Browns. He departed as the NFL record holder for both single-season (1,863 in 1963) and career rushing (12,312 yards), as well as the all-time leader in rushing touchdowns (106), total touchdowns (126), and all-purpose yards (15,549). He was the first player ever to reach the 100-rushing-touchdowns milestone, and only a few others have done so since, despite the league's expansion to a 16-game season in 1978 (Brown's first four seasons were only 12 games, and his last five were 14 games).

Perhaps the most amazing feat is that Jim Brown accomplished these records despite never playing past 29 years of age. Brown's 6 games with at least 4 touchdowns remains an NFL record. This strong PSA 8 is a great example of his tough Rookie card from 1958. Consider the back of the card is as perfect as the front and that there is only a handful of cards graded higher. Bid to own this card!
