Vintage Football Card of the Day -1952 Bowman Small #14 Paul Brown

Today’s Vintage Football Card of the Day was chosen because of tonight’s Monday Night Football match up.  It’s also a card out of my personal collection.

Paul Brown won seven league championships as head coach of the Cleveland franchise (that was later named after him).  Four titles were in the AAFC and the other three were NFL titles.  Many fans want to count “Super Bowl” titles for their teams, but there was football before the Super Bowl.  Brown was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1967.

I’m not as into the NFL as I once was, but I can definitely say “Go Browns!”  Funny how Baltimore still resents the Colts, but loves the Ravens franchise that did the same thing to Cleveland.

Vintage Football Card of the Day -1950 Bowman #6 Lou Groza

There is a gentleman in the “Vintage Football Cards” group on Facebook that will often post cards (not for sale) “in remembrance” on the anniversary of their passing.  That’s what gave me the idea for today’s card of the day.

I have little interest in the current NFL, but when I was really into it, I was a big Cleveland Browns fan.  That made this selection an easy one for me.

1950 Bowman #6 Lou Groza

Groza won EIGHT titles as a member of the Browns.  He was the team’s placekicker and tackle, and also sold insurance.  When he retired from football, he held the record for extra points, field goals and career scoring.  He was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1974.

Mailday: 2013 Upper Deck Quantum Moments In Time Tavon Austin/Stedman Bailey #WVU #Rams

If you take anything away from this post, make it this – if you really want something, bid on it even if you think “there’s no way I will get it for this price.”

I saw this in a Facebook card auction group with an opening bid of $3 (and an additional $3 shipping).  I assumed there was no way it would end at that, but went ahead and bid anyway.  Lo and behold, nobody else ever bid.  I ended up with four cards, but I was really only interested in this one.

The card below were also in the lot but I’ve lost interest in former Mountaineers in their pro uniforms, unless there aren’t cards of them in their WVU uniforms.

These three will end up listed in my Sports Card Direct store at some point.  I just have so many cards to list right now.  If you are interested in any of them, let me know.  I have at least 75 other Austin cards I’m looking to sell.

Vintage Football Card of the Day (#2) – Tom Landry 1951 Bowman #20

This is the second of three vintage football cards of the day.  While he’s pictured on this card as a member of the New York Giants, Tom Landry is most associated as his time as the coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

Vintage Football Card of the Day (#1) – 1952 Bowman Large Doak Walker #3

This is our first of three vintage football card of the day posts.  We have one for each of the NFL games today.  Each will be of someone associated with one of the teams playing.

First up is a 1952 Bowman Large Doak Walker.  I almost went with a different card.  I like the Walker picture better.  However, I just couldn’t pass up using this one because of the Lions logo on the card.

I definitely miss logos like that.  Everything is so stale and boring in the current NFL.

I hope that you enjoyed the look.  Please check back during the next game for another!
