Offered this week on auction is a stunningly sharp example of Chicago's own Mike Ditka 1962 Topps Rookie Card graded SGC 84. This hall of famer is a former American football NFL player, television commentator, and coach. Ditka coached the Chicago Bears for 11 years and New Orleans Saints for three years. Ditka and Tom Flores are the only two people to win an NFL title as a player, an assistant coach, and a head coach. Ditka is also the only individual in modern NFL history to win a championship with the same team as a player and a head coach. Ditka was the only person to participate in both of the last two Chicago Bears' championships, as a player in 1963 and as head coach in 1985. Mike's Rookie card has great value and probably a wise buy for the long haul for any collector looking to buy.
