The Miami Dolphin’s legend is known for being a prolific quarterback with recognitions like Rookie of the year and NFL’s MVP. Like other NFL players, his card collection is the most sought-after by the American public. If there were two things that the greatest quarterback of the Miami Dolphin never had were a Super Bowl Championship and a fleet of cars, which his counterparts like the 7-time Super Bowl Champion Tom Brady or for that matter 4 time Super Bowl Champion Tony Aikman. The 61-year-old NFL player once owned a NASCAR company with the famous race car driver Bill Elliot by the name of Elliot Marino Motorsports. Coming to his collection of cars, the NFL’s greatest keeps a modest approach to owning them. Well, you can't deny his insane net worth amount that has influenced him to collect these amazing cars, and also own a race team. We have made a collection of 4 of his cars that are a 1983 Chevrolet Corvette, a 1974 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, a 1998 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, and a 2016 Ford Expedition.
