1958 Topps football card of Hall of Fame halfback Lenny Moore, who played his entire 12 year career with the Baltimore Colts. Sometimes an overlooked player when the discussion of the greatest backs of all time takes place, he certainly belongs in the mix. He was NFL Rookie of The Year in 1956, and helped the Colts win back-to-back championships in 1958 and ’59. Moore was a seven time Pro Bowler, the 1964 NFL Most Valuable Player, and was named to the NFL All Decade team for the 1950s. He is the only player in NFL history to record at least 40 rushing touchdowns and 40 receiving touchdowns. After his playing days ended, he worked for the Maryland Department of Juvenile Services for 26 years, mentoring at-risk children.
