Johnny Unitas Signed AUTO 3x5 Index Card Document Pre-Rookie Louisville PSA/DNA

Johnny Unitas or "Johnny U", and nicknamed "The Golden Arm", was an American professional American football player in the 1950s through the 1970s. He spent the majority of his career playing for the Baltimore Colts. He was a record-setting quarterback, and the National Football League's most valuable player in 1959, 1964 and 1967. For 52 years he held the record for most consecutive games with a touchdown pass (which he set between 1956–1960) until New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees broke his long-standing record on October 7, 2012. Unitas was the prototype of the modern era marquee quarterback with a strong passing game, media fanfare, and widespread popularity. He’s consistently listed as one of the greatest NFL players of all time.

Offered is a signed 3x5 index card in blue ink that Johnny Unitas filled out while he was at the University of Louisville.  He signed his name and wrote out his college, his position, and the years he played at Louisville.  It’s possible he signed this during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1955 (he was in training camp after being a 9th round pick) or possibly even as late as 1956 when he was with the Baltimore Colts.  Either way, this is one of the earliest Unitas autographs to ever surface on the collector’s market.  Derived originally from the John J. Smith collection.
