(LOT 249)
1962 Topps #28 Jim Brown PSA 8.5 NM-MT+ - POP 3; Only 3 PSA Examples Graded Higher!

HIGH-GRADE BROWN!!! This sensational 1962 Topps #28 PSA 8.5 Jim Brown keepsake stands as one of only three examples at this lofty tier, with a meager three copies graded higher! The mystique behind any superior Jim Brown collectible stems from his unparalleled prowess at carrying a pigskin. A majority of football historians would concur that the legendary Cleveland Brown's running back still stands as the greatest running back in NFL history. Brown ended his career with 12,312 rushing yards to the tune of a miraculous 5.2 yards per carry. Furthermore, he scored 126 TDs (106 rushing, 20 receiving) in a relatively short tenure and is still the only NFL player to average over 100 yards per game throughout his entire career, finishing with a remarkable 104.3 yards per game average. Synonymous with Brown's extensive achievements are the world-class qualities of this PSA 8.5 gem, starting with the two brilliant images (one colored, one black & white) of the iconic Brown. Atypical near-perfect centering between four impeccable black borders, pinpoint corners, and pack-fresh surfaces are the final compliments justifying the hallowed assessment that has only been bested by a paltry three PSA examples!
