Classic Sports Card of The Day

24 Sep


1963 Topps football card of former pro football halfback/flanker Bobby Mitchell, who played 4 seasons in Cleveland before being traded to the Washington Redskins in 1962. Although this card says he’s a Redskin, he is clearly still wearing his Browns’ uniform in the picture. Mitchell was a four-time Pro Bowler and is a member of the Ring of Honor for both the Browns and Redskins. After retiring as a player he spent 34 years in the Redskins’ front office, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983. He still lives in the D.C. area and has been involved in numerous charitable organizations over the years.
