The only player in NFL history to ever throw for over 3,000 yards and rush for over 200 in seven straight seasons, and one of just five players to ever throw for 300 touchdowns -- with Brett Favre, Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton and Peyton Manning -- John Elway is one of the game's most competitive and greatest ever players. When he retired in 1999, after leading the Broncos to six AFC Championships and five Super Bowls, he was the winning-est quarterback in NFL history, with 148 victories (since passed by Favre, with 186, and Manning, with 165, and soon, Tom Brady, with 146), and he was also the game's second most prolific passer (behind Marino, and now Favre and Manning as well). In addition to "The Drive," his career-defining fourth quarter comeback against the Cleveland Browns in the 1987 AFC Championship, Elway also led Denver to 34 other fourth quarter and overtime comeback wins, establishing his legacy as one of the game's greatest ever clutch players. Proudly offered is one of the hobby's finest known examples of "The Comeback Kid's" iconic 1984 Topps rookie card, easily one of the most recognizable and desirable football cards ever produced. Literally perfect in every scrutable category, the offered masterpiece merits its BGS 10 Pristine grade and reports just a dozen prominent piers in its pinnacle class at BGS from nearly 7,000 high-grade submissions, but we see no reason why its corners couldn't grade BGS 10 Pristine as well, which would make it the first ever Quad Pristine 10 example of this card ever graded. Arguably the single finest copy in existence, and easily one of the top 10 football cards in the hobby, this is thee John Elway rookie card to own.
