(LOT 407)
1950 Bowman Football #45 Otto Graham Rookie Card (PSA Mint 9) – NONE Graded Higher!

Otto Graham will forever reside as a bona-fide Hall of Famer in Canton, Ohio. From 1946 thru 1955 with the Cleveland Browns, the accurate passing QB won an astonishing 7 championships (4 AAFC & 3 NFL), claimed 5 Most Valuable Player Awards, led the league multiple times in passing yards, rating and TD passes, was selected to the NFL"s 100th Anniversary All-Time team and is also a member of the Collegiate Hall of Fame! His name always comes up with regard to pro-football's finest leadership qualities and likewise, this spectacular PSA Mint 9 Otto Graham 1950 Bowman Rookie Card suffices as one of ten grid-iron's premier cardboard keepsakes.

Its hallowed assessment places it alongside eight other examples as the finest of its kind, with NONE of the nearly 800 encapsulated PSA copies achieving a Gem Mint 10 grade. It comes as little surprise that the prestigious Bowman Gum Company would choose a classic "passing" image for the immortal Graham, as the timeless quarterback reached back with his renowned right arm to toss another pigskin directly into the hands of one of his receivers. Revealing near-perfect centering, Graham is donning his classic white #60 jersey, with both surfaces portraying their original factory issued quality and the four corners reflecting pinpoint tips. One of the finest aesthetically pleasing Otto Graham rookie cards extant, it irrefutably shares the spotlight with a mere handful of other PSA Mint 9 examples as the pinnacle specimen; truly worthy of a final resting place in any advanced PSA Registered gathering!
