The NFL draft is tonight and we want to celebrate by offering you a chance to own rookie cards of football Hall of Famers. We've hand-picked a few vintage gems you will enjoy!
Tonight the 2023 NFL draft happens at the Union Station and the National WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, MO. Coupled with the location of the draft and the Chiefs being the reigning Super Bowl champions, the first rookie card of a Hall of Famer we want to offer is this beautiful 1963 Fleer Len Dawson.
Len Dawson was the Quarterback for the franchise from 1962-1975, where he won Super Bowl IV in 1970. Dawson won three AFL Championships to go with the Super Bowl win, and also won the AFL MVP award in in 1962. His 30 touchdown passes in 1964 was a team record until Patrick Mahomes broke it in 2018.
This 1963 Fleer rookie of Len Dawson is graded PSA 6. You can see #16 dropping back for a pass, perhaps on the sidelines ready to go in and win a game. This card is available for $825
You may recognize "Thomas" Landry by the shortened version of his name, and his iconic hat he wore on the sidelines. TOM Landry, the Dallas Cowboys' Hall of Fame couch was a good punter in his playing days with the New York Giants. Landry lead the league in punting twice and making a Pro Bowl, but made the Hall of Fame as one of the greatest to ever walk the sidelines. Super Bowls VI and XII belong to Landry and his Cowboys. Despite not having coached a game since 1988, Landry is still 7th all-time in coaching wins with 250.
This 1951 Bowman Tom Landry rookie card is graded SGC 1.5. We love how the colors of the card pop well with the black holder. You can see Landry appearing to throw a pass. Perhaps this was a fake punt? A gorgeous card either way and could be yours for only $250
Y.A. Tittle has one of the nicest-looking rookie cards with this 1950 Bowman SGC 3. You can see Tittle in his #63 jersey doing what looks to be a jump pass. Look at the background; the color of the sky is amazing!
From 1948-1964, Tittle was under center for the Colts, 49er's, and Giants. In his career, Tittle won the MVP award in 1963, made 7 Pro Bowls, and lead the league in touch downs three times. This card is available for $375
We also have rookie cards from Hall of Famers Bobby Lane, Sammy Baugh, Sid Luckman, and more over on our eBay page. You can view all of our cards for sale
Good luck to all of the players in tonight's NFL draft! Some day, a player in this draft could wind up in the Football Hall of Fame and you could find their rookie cards here at Just Collect.
