Classic Sports Card of The Day

12 Dec

1963 Fleer football card of former Buffalo Bills’ tight end Ernie Warlick, who was another stalwart on the team’s back-to-back American Football League championship teams in the 1960s. Like a lot of players of his era, Warlick began his pro career in the Canadian League, playing 5 seasons with the Calgary Stampeders. He joined the Bills in 1962 and played 4 years with them, and was an AFL All Star all 4 of those seasons. After retiring, Warlick became the first African American sportscaster in the Buffalo market, and was elected to the Buffalo Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame in 1998. He is active in the Bills Alumni Association today.
