Description

Spotlighting the New York premiere of "Broadway Joe", the offered 1965 Topps #122 Joe Namath rookie card features the brash quarterback from the University of Alabama. A difficult "tall boy" shortprint, this card has been graded an impressive "70" by SGC. Additionally, Mr. Namath also brandishes the elusive "butterfly" variation on his left hand. So elusive is this peculiarity that the 2003 edition of the Standard Catalog of Football Cards notes "it's uncertain how many, or even if, this variation exists." Attractive beyond measure, this piece proves a prime opportunity to secure one of the most notable rookies in the football hobby.
