John I absoultely love your passion of Football and Football card collecting! This post is like a breathe of fresh air. I enjoy looking at your cards and the care you take in picking out only the very best for your sets! Great job brother and please keep posting those pics........
Working on the following sets: 1966 Topps Football 1964-65 Topps Hockey Upgrades to 65Topps Football
Kind of like the old saying about Fat girls and Moped's: Their both fun to ride, You just don't want to be seen on them.
And Now My Hockey Card.
I actually have a bunch of late 80's early 90's Hockey I got from my cousin. Mostly Upperdeck. My cousin was into Hockey cards back then and at some point he out and quite. He basicaly gave me all of his cards. Some factory Sets and such. How do I get rid of Modern Hockey cards? Burn Pile? or would some actually buy them? LOL
And Now another of my Favorite Football Cards.
What an animal Butkus was on the field. Its a shame they ruined the game by making rules that allow the QB's and Recievers to basically go unchecked, unchallenged or untouched in order to allow them to score more points.
Its really not even true football anymore. I mean come on, Every half ass QB in the league throws for 3000-4000 a year. Not all that hard when the "Peyton Manning" rules completely tie the defenders hands. "Don't touch the QB" FOUL Roger Staubach was right. The outrageous passing rules have made it a "wussy Game"
No Wussies here:
Mr. Cowboy was as tough as nails. I sure miss when it was real football.
While Im ranting.... There's no way on this earth Drew Brees EVER even approaches Johnny Unitas' 47 game TD record without the comfort afforded him by the rules that allow them to go uncontested in the modern day passing game. Just surviving 47 games back then was a miracle in itself.
And While Im at.... whats all this runnig out of bounds crap. These guys never ran out of bounds.
EVEN IF THESE CRAZY ANIMALS WERE CHASING THEM!
I suppose Im just bias toward the Old School Football.
Your couldn't be more correct about the quarterbacks of today. What irritated me about seeing Brees break Johnny Unitas record is hardly any mention of the difference in the rules was mentioned. Brees is a protected species throwing back there and Untias was a hunted Animal!!
