Featured Card: 1970 Topps #90. Known as one of the greatest rushers of all time in his prime, followed by being a respectable actor and television broadcaster, and finally in his later “infamous” antics, “The Juice” has remained in the forefronts of collectors’ minds. This is evidenced by the huge number of current eBay listings for his rookie card. Prices are all over the place, with many falling just under $100. There is the token way-higher-than-anything-else listing with a $705.26 price tag, but hey, at least the seller is taking best offers. Interestingly enough, there are two other listings (all graded) that break the $500 mark.
