The Latest Football HOFer

I got this card through the mail about a week ago, but have not been able to post in here. I now have 191 different football hall of famers.

This is a 1953 Bowman Marion Motley. Marion was one of the first African Americans in professional football and a great power running back. He was also a great linebacker and Otto Graham called him a better fullback than Jim Brown. When the NFL Network created their list of the top 100 players of all time, Motley was number 74. I am very happy to add this to my collection!
