They sure dont sad.gif

Ive always been a fan of "old-school" football.

Seem like every year the players get more like spoiled hollywood primadonnas.. just out for themselves and drawing attention to themselves any way they can. Seems like every tackle is followed by a stupid dance by the guy who made it.. no matter if the play lost yards or gained 99 yards. That and they are getting closer and closer to fitting the QB with a dress each season.

I feel the same way about my Bears players.. If Greg Olsen did some Chad Johnson pre-planned dance after every score, I would hate it just as much.. but I would still be happy he scored! wink.gif

Just another reason my favorite player is, and always will be, Walter Payton. Class on and off the field. Have you even seen a highlight clip of him trying to draw attention to himself after a 5 yard run, or even a touchdown? I do remember quite a few times when he flipped the ball to a offensive lineman after a TD to let them spike it so they could feel that joy though.

Nope.. they just dont make them like they used to, do they?

Couldn't of said it better myself. Let's see if the new AAFL will bring back some respectability that real football fans deserve. Season starts first week of April.

OK, We're ready for another.

What's this card here all about? Comes from a regular set.

OK 48 more hrs. here on this one and We might just do the last one of all this weekend unless some others want to pitch in.


Last Clue: regular card, not an inset. 1960's and non-Topps.

1964 Philadelphia
card #98

Game was Nov 3 1963
Rams 13 Minn 21
What this card is all about is that the first two years of the Philadelphia Gum Co. Football Cards had each (almost) football team had a play card with the teams head coach on it. Very unique. They picked one of their top plays with a name (you try to get that info today) and named an important game in that season they used it in. And yes every card I found, that team won the game LOL. biggrin.gif

That was 1967 Philadelphia Gum Co. Bruce Gossett. This was the last year Philadelphia Gum made football cards. 4 years total from 1964 through 1967. All great looking cards which I favor much over the Topps of the same era. All had excellent stats on back and some with scratch offs ! They were NFL only as they did not have a AFL contract, so no present day AFC teams were included.
Bruce Gossett was the best kicker in the NFC at the time, well actually the NFL itself since it was pre '70! But only two kickers had more reliable toes than Bruce Gossett during his playing span and they were both AFL'ers. Jan Stenerud and George Blanda. Bruce played with the Rams about 6 years and then another 3 1/2 with the 49ers. He won a lot a games for Roman Gabriel and John Brodie with his magic toe! biggrin.gif

That's the year. He set an all time record at the time for something. Who is this guy and what did he do best?
