Graded GEM MINT 10 by SGC. Walter Payton is considered as not the just greatest player and running back to play for the Chicago Bears, but many would argue that he might be the best running back ever. Another fourth-overall selection by Chicago, Payton played four years of college ball at Jackson State and when he got to the NFL, he had to wait a few years behind Sayers before his pro career could take off. But when he did get finally get the chance, Payton ran with the football and never looked back. Here are some of the accolades and records Payton amassed over his career. Out of his 13 seasons, Payton was named a Pro Bowler nine times (1976-1980, 1983-1986) and was selected for All-Pro teams eight times. He would also lead the league in rushing attempts for four straight years from 1976-1979. The legendary running back would also win MVP honors in 1977. Payton would solidify his legacy by winning his only Super Bowl in 1986 against the Patriots. Playing his entire career with the Bears, the Hall of Famer retired with a total of 16,726 rushing yards and 110 rushing touchdowns, second and fourth all-time in NFL history, respectively. A great player and even better person, “Sweetness” will go down as one of the best to ever run a football. the featured card appears as strong as the athlete that "Sweetness" was! Precisely centered with four utterly flawless corners as well as an abundance of color. The surface is a blistering rendition with a stunning layer of original gloss as well as an ice like appearance with no surface blemishes to be encountered which is actually quite common to the issue. The reverse is splendidly printed with no staining apparent which is an irregularity as the issue is often plagued by small oil spots. A tremendous card offered at the very top end of the GEM MINT grade!
