Classic Sports Card of The Day

08 Dec


It was such a huge event that it had to be given it’s own special football card. This 1978 Topps “Highlight” card signifies the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ first ever win as a franchise. It took almost 2 full seasons, and after 26 consecutive losses to begin their existence, quarterback Gary Huff led the Bucs to a win over the equally hapless New Orleans Saints. Huff played 7 years in the NFL, and was a classic journeyman. After retiring, he served in various coaching capacities and is currently the senior associate athletic director at his alma mater, Florida State.
