You’ve found the right place if you’re looking for a Troy Aikman 1989 Pro Set card. It is graded Gem Mint 10 by Beckett and features the player’s signature. This card is a rare opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind piece of history. This card features an autograph of the HOF-inducted athlete.
The 1989 Pro Set includes three sets. The first series has 440 cards; the second contains 100 cards; and the third, the Final Update set, features 21 cards. Each card has a small photo, basic statistics, and is sorted alphabetically or numerically. The second series features draft prospects and first-round selections. There are several sets with a single player, so you’re bound to find a high-quality, inexpensive football card.
After an injury limited Aikman’s playing time, he was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys as the number one overall pick in the 1989 NFL Draft. The Cowboys went on to win three Super Bowls in four seasons, and Aikman was named MVP of the game in Super Bowl XXVII. Troy Aikman was a three-time All-Pro, six-time Pro Bowl selection, and retired as the Cowboys’ all-time leading passer. Only Peyton Manning and Tom Brady have passed Aikman’s ninety touchdowns over the decade that Aikman was drafted in Dallas by the Cowboys.
A rookie card by Emmitt Smith might be worth considering for collectors with a $120 budget. His 1989 Pro Set card is among the best-selling rookie cards and carries a high value. A PSA 10 graded by BGS will fetch over $2,000 for one of the finest examples. A PSA 9.5 Jerry Rice card can fetch five figures. Even though he only made a few dozen cards of his favorite players during his career, he still earned millions. Besides the 1989 Pro Set, there’s also a set of McDonald’s. Only the Bay Area is eligible for this set.
