Here is a fun interview that David Letterman did with Jets legend, Joe Namath.  And despite being a card collector since the age of five, I’ve never heard the story that Joe tells about his rookie card!  Have you?

    Last Time I met Joe,he was a Jr Seau’s restaurant working for direct tv and signing autographs there…I purchased a jets helmet and drove to Seau’s and got in line…As I got to meet him,I told him how being a AFL Fan That super Bowl was one of the Greatest Days in my Life…He said well I wasn’t the best Player in the AFL and turned into a real A-hole,nothing like the Letterman interview. I know he was a Huge alcoholic and seemed Hung over …very disappointing
