New Rookie

I picked up this 1969 Topps rookie card of Dolphins legend Larry Csonka. He rushed for over 8000 yards in his career and was known for his toughness. When asked about him, a coach said, “When Csonka goes on safari, the lions roll up their windows.”. What a great quote. Here is the card.

    Nice pick up. Mr. Csonka lives up here near me in Alaska, at least for the summer months. I have friend who works the snack shack and beer cart at a local golf course in the summer and I’m happy to report that Larry is a good tipper.
