Like Blackie, I can't say that Im a supporter of the type of human being OJ became later in life.
But from a purely Football aspect, There is NO DOUBT that he was one of the All-Time Greats of the game and a strong argument came be made that he was quite possibly the greatest of all-time.
Size, Power and Speed, OJ had it all and was surely the most Dominate back of the seventies.
I would like to get my OJ out of the hideous holder it is in. Maybe someday I will, or maybe just break it out and leave it raw.
Of coarse The 1971 Topps Football set is one of my all-time favorites. After the 1/2 grade money grab PSA incorperated to rape their customers, I decided they were no longer a reputable company operating with integreity and moral values and crossed my entire 71 Set to SGC.
Yes it is more of a challenge finding SGC cards, But now even in light of the more recent corruption with big consigers and the fraud they obviously and Ive no doubt intentionally committed in order to get the Hornus Wagner in their slab, I have never been more confident in my choice to move my 71 Set and many other cards to SGC.
Of coarse, The first card I crossed was The Bradshaw Rookie.
Many of the cards I subbed from my raw set. I was kind of disappointed with the Joe Greene Rookie I subbed. SGC is just so much tougher on grading the 71's, almost to a fault IMHO. I still believe the Joe Greene is a NM or better card.
I cracked the card out and keep it in my raw set. Im still looking for an SGC 88.
Anyway! Its great to see some football collectors here!
