1960 Fleer football card of a pro football and political legend, quarterback Jack Kemp. He was the QB for the Chargers in their inaugural American Football League season, when they played in the city they are now returning to, Los Angeles. Kemp guided the Chargers to the AFL title game, but they lost to George Blanda and the Houston Oilers. He would go on to lead the Buffalo Bills to a pair of AFL titles, then became a Western New York congressman after retiring. The pinnacle of his political career came in 1996, when he was Bob Dole’s vice presidential candidate on the Republican ticket. His son Jeff played in the NFL, mostly as a backup quarterback, for 10 seasons.
