(LOT 104)
1957 Topps #138 Johnny Unitas Rookie PSA 8 NM-MT

CLASSIC UNITAS!!! Finding a well-centered Johnny Unitas rookie is equivalent to finding a needle in a haystack, justifying why this PSA 8 NM-MT 1957 Topps Unitas Rookie revealing fine image positioning merits serious hobby accolades. Only exhibiting a modest favoritism towards the left edge, this classic two-pose card is worthy of any world-class gathering. HOF quarterback Johnny Unitas will forever be considered one of the NFL's greatest all-time QBs. While more recent stars such as Brady, Marino, Favre, Montana and Manning have eclipsed many of his passing records, many historians still regard Unitas as one of football's foremost signal-callers, largely in part due to his unparalleled leadership ability.

Therefore, it comes as little surprise that gridiron collectors continue to painstakingly pursue his 1957 Topps rookie card in high-grade condition, with the Unitas Rookie being one of the hobby's most significant cardboard gems along with other iconic inaugural cards such as the Nagurski, Brown, Namath and several Brady issues. Pack-fresh surfaces, rich orange and green hues, crystal-clear image quality and pinpoint corners all substantiate the assessment that seldom surfaces for this legendary Unitas keepsake!
