Classic Sports Card of The Day

02 Oct


1984 Topps football card of former linebacker Jack Lambert, a ferocious member for 11 seasons of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ “Steel Curtain” defense. He was known for his physical style of play and once said that quarterbacks “should wear dresses”. His resume is long and full of honors – 9-time Pro Bowler, 4-time Super Bowl champion, NFL Defensive Rookie of The Year (1974), NFL Defensive Player of The Year (1976), and member of the NFL’s All Decade Teams for both the 1970s and 1980s. Lambert had a toothless snarl that gave his rugged image a boost, but the missing teeth were actually a result of taking an elbow in a high school basketball game. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1990.
