Default Let's have a virtual card show, gridiron edition!

Working like a charm on the prewar baseball board. Rules are simple: post one football card a day (story optional) and keep coming back! I will start with a favorite card from a favorite set:

Forty years ago (gasp!) when I was a teenager I bought a collection of late 1960s cards from one of my teachers. Lots of 1968 FB in there. I fell in love with the design. I had a Starr but must've sold or traded it off. Years later I was at a local card show here and I found a beautiful Starr. I bought it but then sold it too. Several years ago one of my parents' friends' sons was looking to sell off his childhood collection. He collected from 1958 to 1969 but the later years were really just buy and box. I ended up with a stellar 1969 Johnny Bench that he'd barely handled. There was a small but nice group of 1968 FB in there, including this Starr, which I sent to PSA. As an added bonus I got to unfold several crisp, as in never before unfolded, posters, including this great Johnny U:

At ten all I thought about was card collecting. At twenty all I thought about was women. At thirty all I thought about was success. At forty all I thought about was money. Now all I think about is retirement...because all I want to think about is card collecting!
