1964 Philadelphia
Frank Gifford

One year later, and this is the seventh post. Pathetic!

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
Not Bad.
