Joe Namath, known to fans as "Broadway Joe" is a former AFL and NFL quarterback who played during the 1960s and 1970s. Namath was an American Football League icon and played for the New York Jets for most of his professional career but finished his career with the NFL's Los Angeles Rams. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1985.
Namath retired after playing in 140 games 62 wins, 63 losses and 4 ties. In his career he threw 173 touchdowns, 220 interceptions, and completed 1,886 passes for 27,663 yards. During his 13 years in pro football, he played for three division champions (the 1968 and 1969 AFL East Champion Jets and the 1977 NFC West Champion Rams), earned one league championship (1968 AFL Championship), and one Super Bowl.
In 1999, he was ranked number 96 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players. He is perhaps best known for boldly guaranteeing a Jets' victory over Don Shula's NFL Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III (1969) and then making good on his boast.
Namath is considered to be football’s first true media superstar. Premiere Entertainment Fine Artist Joe Petruccio has captured the persona of this football legend is a new fine art line being offered by The Pop Culture Vault.
