1933 Goudey Sport Kings Gum football card of former pro back Harold “Red” Grange, one of the earliest star players to help put the pro game on the map. He signed with the Chicago Bears after an All American college career and was the star attraction as the team went on a barnstorming tour of the country, in the days before the NFL was an organized league. “The Galloping Ghost” played for 9 years and was a two-time All Pro, a member of 2 Bear championship clubs and was named to the NFL’s All Decade team for the 1920s. After retiring as a player, Grange was the Bears’ backfield coach for 3 seasons, starred in a few Hollywood movies and broadcast Bear games for CBS television. He was a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, inducted with the inaugural class in 1963.
