(LOT 129)
1950 Bowman Football #5 Y.A. Tittle Rookie Card SGC GEM MINT 10 – The SOLE "Gem Mint 10" Example on the Combined SGC & PSA "Pop" Charts!

One of Pro Football's greatest all-time quarterbacks was the legendary signal-caller Y.A. Tittle who played a sensational 17-year Hall of Fame career with the Colts, Forty-Niners and Giants. His extensive list of accolades includes a 1963 MVP award, seven Pro Bowl appearances, three times leading the league in touchdown passes, and he is still one of only eight quarterbacks who threw an NFL record seven TDs in a single game! Synonymous with these world-class highlights comes along this "jaw-dropping" SGC "Gem Mint 10" 1950 Bowman #5 Y.A. Tittle ROOKIE CARD that just happens to stand as the SOLE "Gem Mint 10" example on the COMBINED SGC and PSA "Pop" Charts!

Indeed folks, of the 700+ SGC/PSA encapsulated copies, this "pack-fresh" prize is the one and only "10", outdistancing all of its substandard peers to reign supreme as the "best of the rest". Issued only two years after Tittle started his professional gridiron career with the Baltimore Colts, the card emanates sparkling attributes highlighted by a near-perfectly centered image portraying the Canton, Ohio inductee in an imposing "passing a football" pose. Donning his classic green-hued #63 jersey, the image is virtually flawless, showing no ill effects over the past 71 years, with blinding white borders, blistering sharp corner tips and clean verso - all contributing to the well-earned assessment. Its unimprovable stature is the perfect testament for Tittle's outstanding gridiron career, with this Gem Mint offering the only Tittle rookie card on the planet capable of boasting the near-impossible "10" assessment!
