Classic Sports Card of The Day

25 Oct


1963 Fleer football card of former pro football halfback Abner Haynes, who was a perennial All Star player in the American Football League. In fact, he was the league’s Rookie of The Year and Player of The Year in 1960, the first year of the AFL’s existence, while playing for the Dallas Texans. Haynes played for 9 seasons in the AFL for 4 different teams, was an All Star 4 times, and won a pair of championships – as a star halfback for the 1962 AFL champion Texans, and as a little-used backup with the Super Bowl III champion New York Jets.
