(LOT 104)
1969 Topps #51 Gale Sayers PSA 9 MINT

SAYERS IN '69!!! Despite playing only seven seasons in the NFL (1965-71), Gale Sayers was one of the most elusive running backs that the game has ever seen. Future Hall of Famers like Tony Dorsett, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders and Marshall Faulk emulated the Hall of Famer's evasiveness, as well as his work ethic and heart. If not for multiple severe knee injuries, who knows the kind of records that the Kansas Comet would still hold to this day? The offered 1969 Topps #51 Gale Sayers in a PSA 9 is one of the highest graded with only a single card achieving a higher grade. Impeccable in every conceivable manner, the imposing bold pink background creates an almost 3D effect for Sayers classic running pose. The Bears logo is situated near the lower right quadrant, all four corners are pinpoint sharp and both surfaces are immaculate. A meticulous collector's ultimate dream card!
