1964 Topps football card of former New York Jets’ player Matt Snell, who played 9 seasons for the New York club in their American Football League days into the early 1970s when they were part of the NFL. This is Snell’s “rookie” card, as he was drafted by the Jets in 1964, and despite what the card says, he only played fullback for the team. He was named AFL Rookie of The Year in ’64, was a three-time AFL All Star, and a major contributor to the Jets’ Super Bowl III winning team. Snell currently is a partner in DEFCO Securities, Inc. and owns a restaurant in New York City.
