A Throwback to Football ... Black History

I have all but refrained from buying any other sports cards except hockey and soccer. But a recent internet search brought me across some vintage football.

In as much I love the history behind the cards as well as the subject, this 1951 Bowman card of Paul "Tank" Younger was too good to pass up. (coming to me for less that $7.00)

One read from the back of the card one can understand how significant Younger was to football history. The added bonus is that he was part of a great 1951 Los Angeles Rams' NFL Championship team.

Very cool blog, I was born in 72 so I decided to take the set on. Look in my cardville section, lots of 72 inserts.
