1986 Topps Football #161 Jerry Rice Rookie - PSA GEM MT 10

Starting Bid - $500, Sold For - $2,644

Graded GEM MINT 10 by PSA. Only 44 of the 12,617 Rice rookies submitted to PSA from the 1986 Topps Football set have ever been assigned this top grade of GEM MINT. This is the ultimate high-grade rookie card of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. The 1986 Topps Football set is prone to many different problems, including centering issues, print quality, and especially corner and edge chipping. This card is essentially perfect in all respects. The centering is perfect. All four corners are razor-sharp. The corners exhibit no wear or chipping whatsoever, even under extreme magnification, which is particularly remarkable. Perfectly crisp and clean, both front and back. This is a world-class ultra high-grade rookie card of Jerry Rice, the greatest wide receiver in the history of the game, from one of the most condition-sensitive football sets ever produced. GEM MINT condition! SMR value for the assigned graded is $2,100. Reserve $500. Estimate $1,000/$1,500. SOLD FOR $2,644
