There's no greater challenge in all of sports than to find that franchise quarterback that raises an NFL team to the status of perennial contenders for the next decade or longer. In rare instances, teams find consecutive franchise quarterbacks to power their teams for over a generation, like the San Francisco 49ers with Montana and Young and the Green Bay Packers with Favre and Rodgers. But for every Manning and Roethlisberger, there are dozens of "can't miss" first-round prospects that, well, missed. Names like Russell, Couch, Leaf, Marinovich, Manziel, Quinn, Tebow, RG III, Ponder, Sanchez, Bortles ... the list goes on and on. All came highly touted, all cast aside to try to find the next one that promises to turn losers into winners. Teams mortgage their future and move up in the draft hoping they're right, while coaches and General Managers lose their jobs if they're wrong. The Kansas City Chiefs found their golden goose with pick #10 overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft in Texas Tech signal-caller Patrick Mahomes. The second QB selected in the draft behind now Buffalo Bills backup Mitch Trubinsky, Mahomes held the clipboard his rookie year behind Alex Smith, getting a start in the final regular-season game before the Chiefs headed to the playoffs. Elevated to starter when Smith was traded to Washington, Mahomes has one of the greatest seasons in NFL history for a quarterback. Not a first-year quarterback; any quarterback! He led the NFL with 50 touchdown passes to just 12 interceptions while eclipsing 5,000 yards passing, a feat accomplished by only 7 other quarterbacks. Now having completed three full seasons, "Showtime" has a 38-8 record, 114 passing TDs to 24 interceptions, a Super Bowl Championship, an NFL MVP award, a Super Bowl MVP award, and is ranked #1 in the 2021 NFL Top 100. And he's 26 years old. Patrick Mahomes rookie card issues are among the most coveted items in the hobby, and the featured 2017 National Treasures Holo Silver #161 Jersey Auto is right there at the top of the list. Graded MINT 9 by BGS with a PERFECT 10 autograph, this is one of only 25 cards made by Panini (#20/25) and features a flawless penning of the superstar with a generous tri-colored patch of his Kansas City Chiefs jersey. After years of debate, casual fans and historians alike have recently come to a general consensus that Tom Brady is the greatest quarterback in NFL history. But that opinion might be short-lived as Patrick Mahomes is well on his way toward obliterating virtually every passing record a quarterback could hold. A 1/1 example that looks exactly the same except the jersey patch displays the NFL shield was sold privately at the 2021 National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago for the sum of $4.3M dollars. And realistically, his career has only just begun. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the most valuable football cards ever produced!
