Vintage Football Card of the Day – Joe Perry 1950 Bowman #35 RC BVG 4.5

When professional football was reintegrated, Joe Perry was one of the first black players into the league.  He was the first NFL player to rush for more than 1,000 in back-to-back seasons.  The three time Pro Bowler was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1969.  Perry passed away in 2011.

Beckett Auctions currently has this Perry rookie up for auction. You can find it here.
