Signed example of one of the all-time classic football cards: Joe Namath’s rookie card from the very popular and condition-sensitive 1965 Topps "Tall Boys" football series.. Encapsulated by SGC, which has graded the signature (“9”) and the card (GOOD+ 35). Namath has boldly signed the card in blue Sharpie on the front. This is the first signed example of this card we have ever offered and we cannot recall having seen more than one or two others at auction. The card displays a number of very light horizontal creases near the top that are only visible upon close inspection, as well as moderate corner wear. Despite the flaws, the card presents at a level higher than that suggested by its technically accurate grade and displays exceptionally well. Reserve $300. Estimate (open).
