Item Description


Offered for your consideration is a 1957 Topps #138 Johnny Unitas rookie card that has been authenticated and conservatively graded PSA 6 EX/MT by Professional Sports Authenticators.

Unitas, considered one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game was known for his flat-top, crew-cut hair style, his black, high-top football cleats and his never ending rainstorm of touchdown passes. Unitas is featured on his inaugural Topps appearance smiling broadly with his youthful grin and in his classic, drop back quarterback passing post. Highlighted by bold colors and clear registration and focus, the centering has a slight shift to the left, but still falls within the parameters of a Near Mint card. The corners present as NM/MT with sharp, distinct points at all four corners and only the slightest hint of wear showing. The only issue that we can find that seems to be keeping this beauty from a PSA 7 NM or better holder is the light snow that appears in the dark purple jersey on the portrait side of the card.

The reverse is well centered and presents as nice as or better than the obverse. This would be a fantastic addition to most collections and it would be tough to find a nicer example in this grade.

Combined shipping discounts available. The first card starts at $4.00 and $1.00 for each additional card with a max of $15.00. Please wait for a final invoice on Monday morning.

For International Shipping, the cost will be higher compared to domestic. Please wait for invoicing for final cost. If you have any questions please call our office at (732) 828-2261.

About Just Collect, Inc.

Just Collect, Inc., the Nation's top buyer of vintage sports cards & memorabilia, was founded in 2005 by Leighton Sheldon. With a background in every area of the vintage sports card hobby, he noted that private auction houses would receive large consignments of cards from collectors, investors, and dealers from across the country. Many of these collections would then be purchased by smaller dealers, with the intent of breaking up the collection on eBay for a profit. Just Collect has adopted a business model of buying directly from the collector, and selling to the public via eBay, eliminating all buyer's & seller's premiums. Just Collect is known for paying top dollar for vintage collections across all collectible disciplines, including cards, memorabilia, comics, and coins. By doing so, Just Collect has the opportunity to provide the public with a fresh inventory on a weekly basis via their eBay stores: just_collect & justcollectcards.
