So when I came across the stack of cards I bought a year ago, I figured it was time. Time to give this blog a little attention.
Today, I learned that if you wanted football cards in 1964 you had two choices: Philadelphia Gum for cards of the National Football League and Topps for the rival American Football League.
This card of Frank Gifford shows the future broadcaster, Hall-of-Famer and husband of Kathie Lee in his final season.
Here are a few highlights from Gifford's career (from Wikpedia):
- 8× Pro Bowl selection (53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 63)
- 6× All-Pro selection (53, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59)
- 1956 UPI NFL MVP
- 1958 Pro Bowl MVP
