Classic Sports Card of The Day

05 Nov


1961 Fleer football card of former quarterback Milt Plum, who played 13 seasons in the NFL for 4 different teams. He started his career in Cleveland in 1957 when the Browns drafted him in the second round, after choosing Jim Brown in the first round. Plum quarterbacked the Browns for 5 years, engineering an offense built around the running of Brown and Bobby Mitchell, but he still was able to make the Pro Bowl twice. He was traded to Detroit in a six-player deal in 1962 and guided the Lions’ offense for 5 years there. Plum holds a unique NFL record – the longest pass completion to himself – 20 yards.
