I agree with everything said so far. Pro football really did not take off until the early 60's, while it is romantic to think the 1958 sudden death game was the launching point it was really the competition not only between the NFL and AFL but also the competition between the networks.

Joe Willie was just in the right place at the right time. I am so turned off by the media, especially ESPN that constantly refers to teams "World Championships" referring exclusively to their Super Bowl titles ignoring the pre-66 titles. The Steelers, 49ers and Cowboys are impressive but don't forget the Packers and Bears.

The history is just not celebrated by the media or the "League" like it is in baseball.

Is Joe Namath overrated - sure.
Is he a HOFer - yes.
Is his significance as much a cause as his play and statistics - absolutely.
He changed football as we know it FOREVER when he won SBIII.

As for the card - never approach the Mantle level simply because the demand will never be there.

Default Nice upgrade Larry!

Great upgrade Larry! Your new one has a much better image (brighter/clearer) and reverse. Great price too! Congratulations!

Joe Namath is now hitting the memorabilia circuit like Mickey Mantle did in the 1980s and 1990s.

My conclusion is the Joe Namath rookie card is extremly undervalued and will jump in price over this next decade.
Any thoughts on this?

btw I am a long time lurker, and this is my first post.
Quick bump because as pointed out in another thread!

This is proof that Joe Namath RC has some juice. He owned New York in the 1960s and 1970s.

And Mantle 8.5 sold for 1.135 million dollars. Namath will never be Mantle. Mantle won 7 championships, Namath won 1.

Here is a link to Superbowl III below:

I think that the Joe Namath RC still has plenty of room to grow. PSA 7 examples are going for $5,000 - $6,000 USD, and that's nothing IMO. If you are going to pick one up, try to get one without the tilt.

Merry Christmas!

I wouldn't call it nothing. How many other 60s regular issue cards go for that much in a 7? Orr, anyone else?
