If you collect football cards then the 1981 Topps Joe Montana rookie card is an absolute must have.
Not only is it one of the most valuable football cards of the 1980's, it's one of the most expensive of all-time.
Montana didn't possess the strongest arm but what he did better than anyone else was manage the game with consistency and accuracy and find ways to win. Having Jerry Rice on his team sure didn't hurt either.
His ability to remain calm under pressure and drive his teams to countless fourth quarter victories earned him nicknames such as "Joe Cool" and "The Comeback Kid".
That reputation earned him a place as one of the most popular players of all times and his cards are some of the most highly collected as a result.
