I did a blog entry last July on custom cards of Joe Namath, focusing on the "cards that never were" from the last 5 years of his career.  As one of the most highly profiled players in the history of the game, collectors have been interested in obtaining anything they can get their hands on bearing the likeness of Broadway Joe.  Now they can add five cards of Joe spanning 1974 through 1978.  

The first card in the 5-card set is the original card that made it to the test stage but was never officially released (see the July blog entry for a few more details on this super rare card).  The next 4 cards feature a variety of poses including a final card for Joe in a Rams uniform.  The backs were almost as fun to create as the fronts with detailed stats, bio information, and sharp graphics reminiscent of the old cards of the mid-late 70's.  Get yours by clicking here!

Joe finally gets his cards!
