Emmitt Smith Bio-
Smith played college football and then was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys as running back.  For 15 seasons, he became the NFL’s greatest rushing leader, breaking numerous records and being honored with many awards.  For instance, Smith played in three victorious Super Bowl games, becoming the only NFL running back to win the championship, NFL Most Valuable Player, rushing crown, and Super Bowl Most Valuable Player within the same season.  In addition, Smith is one of just two professional non-kickers in the history of the NFL to have over 1,000 career points.

Interestingly, Smith was originally considered too slow and small to be a pro and while drafted in a first round, he was ranked at number 17.  However, Smith went on to prove everyone wrong by having more than 1,400 rushing yards in five consecutive seasons, being given the Dallas Cowboy’s Ring of Honor, receiving the Bert Bell Award, making the 1990’s All-Decade Team, and in 2010, being inducted into the Pro Football Hal of Fame.  The Emmitt Smith rookie card can be found through local sports memorabilia stores, as well as online sources to include eBay among others.
