    Almost a year after it first surfaced at last years National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago, the only BGS 10 Joe Montana Rookie Card in existence recently sold at auction for the staggering sum of $65,880, according to Modern Marvels Auctions president Dave Amerman. According to Beckett Media Senior Market Analyst Dan Hitt, the figure is easily the most ever paid for a professionally graded, modern-era football card. In addition, its the third highest sale of a single football card ever recorded by Beckett Media, surpassed only by two different sales of an SGC 96 Mint copy of Bronko Nagurskis 1935 National Chicle card, for $240,000 and $80,000, respectively. Clearly, the condition of the card and the BGS 10 grade associated ultimately attributed to the final sale price, Amerman admits. The facts are that this is the only one of this grade and perhaps the finest known example available in the world.

    I have some of those cards with the pieces of jerseys in them which is pretty cool.

    No matter what your card is worth in the eyes of professionals, ultimately it's only worth what someone else will pay for it. Ok 86, I'll give you $3.00 and a GIF Hoody, that's worth more then anything out there today...

    I don't think Topps paid for the usage of NFL logo's from 1970-1981...
