1964 Topps football card of former pro quarterback Mike Taliaferro, who played 8 seasons of pro ball with 4 different teams. He played in 3 different leagues-the AFL, NFL and World Football League. He was drafted by the New York Jets in 1964 but fell out of favor there the next season when the team drafted Joe Namath.
