201!!!

This is the 201st different football hall of famer I have picked up for my collection. It is a 1951 Bowman Bob Waterfield. As a quarterback for the LA Rams, he was three time first team all pro and once a second team all pro. He won NFL titles in 1945 and 1951. He was named MVP and was also named on the NFL 1940s all decade team. As a defensive back he had 20 career INTs and was also a great kicker and punter, which explains the photo in the card. He was also Hollywood off the field as shown by his marriage to Jane Russell from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. He was elected to the Hall in 1965 and passed away in 1983.
